Canadian Tire Compliment - Helpful and civil, even when exit alarm sounds
TRAIL, BC, CANADA -- My compliments to Canadian Tire in Trail BC on two points.
First, the AM Ford dealership diagnosed my vehicle as needing work done on the brakes but could not schedule anything until the week after next because they were too busy selling and changing out tires. I drove over to Canadian Tire and they scheduled me in to accommodate my travel plans.
Second, as I was leaving the store, the exit alarm sounded. I had not, of course, taken anything. Also, of course, I waited and staff approached. There was none of that intimidating stuff that you might see in other stores. They were just trying to help me figure out what set off the alarm. I cooperated and we tried a number of things. We never did figure out what was setting it off, and I even offered to let them search me, which they declined to do. After a few minutes they just let me go. Throughout this they were very pleasant and polite, which I think is unusual in this situation. Admittedly, they probably wouldn't have been so pleasant and polite if it had turned out that I had stolen something, but nevertheless, I think it is worth omplimenting them for their professional behavior.
