The website is a little dodgy with all the additions of outside code and scripts but as far as the business goes they have stood the test of time and always come out on top. They have pretty much everything they advertise in the flyer and a lot of it. It is one of the few stores in my area that still has reasonable staff. My local home depot has been gutted with garbage employees but the HH nearby at parkway mall still has people who know what a fuse is and can get it for you.

Canadian tire runs sales for items which are rarely or never available. I do not say this from a one or two time experience. I have repeatedly tried to chase down items they mail you in the flyer and they are almost never available despite the website saying it has 9 in stock. The most recent was a cheap jacket on sale, just as I expected the website said there was 6 mediums but 10mins later in the store there was 0. Only ridiculous sizes like XXL .. A month before that boots went on sale, exact same thing. WS says 9 all day but store has 0.. The guy at the store revealed that they run it like this and they never had any 9 to begin. They use the "computer error & last year stock" as a lie and excuse but its textbook false advertising and they always do it with their cheap chinese brands. This is the scam to get you in the store, they take an already cheap item and cut it by 40% and realistically none are available or sold for that price. In all honesty they had 1 x 9 but the insoles were missing so it was clearly a return or scrap stock from last season. The people in upper manangement are scumbags as well the store manager at Leslie & Sheppard..The floor people are just bad because they're forced to lie to customers for managements issues. Would not recommend unless you like false advertising and rip offs.

The management at kijiji are some of the stupidest people in the world. They are trying to legitimize this site by adding more metrics, analytics, bad rules and user racking. Some idiot decided it would be good to include how often you respond so they can block and ban you later with a point/credit system and of course track you at time of response. But how stupid and unfair is this? 90% of the replies from kijiji are lowlifes, kids and drug addicts. Some don't even need a reply because its just someone saying call me at xxx-xxx. Kijiji always rigs the system so the honest seller has to respond to trash and be rated for it. Why would anyone respond to a lowlife when you already put your best price, let's say $50 and some lowlife or reseller offers you $10. You are supposed to respond and say no thank you sir. I heard this same story from my friend who's a car dealer and they list cars for $4000-$5000 and people offer them $1000.

This is especially bad in big city like Toronto where its all refugees and refuse. The other thing people do is reference some ad 5000 miles away in Arizona and ask you to compete with it. Screw them. Just delete the account and put it on craigslist. Any site that forces you to sign up to tracking and metrics should be banned from Canada. Why even bother with Kijiji since their ads are way down and the prices are way up. The sellers lost about $13,000 since I stopped buying there because that is about what I spent last year before the bad changes.
