It isn’t until you get to another country that you have to start working out what stores are what. When I first saw the huge warehouse buildings of Canadian Tire, I kept thinking it was some automotive warehouse chain. When I finally got to go inside, it reminded me of a mixture between Bunnings, Kmart, and Big W. It has outdoor furniture available, as well as camping gear, sports gear, pool accessories, kitchenware, blah blah blah.
It really has a bit of everything.
We used it recently to stock up on some camping accessories, torches and batteries, and even dog leads. It is reasonably priced also, in other words – affordable.
I enjoy going into big shopping stores. I love seeing what they have. I always find things that I think are interesting and it’s a great way to pass time in order to have your creative mind on the look out. The last Canadian Tire I went too, I took some shops so anybody coming to Canada from out of town, will know where to go, to get things they need. They also have more specific shops like ‘Rona’ (Which is an exact equivalent of Bunnings in Australia) and they have Walmart (Equivalent of Kmart/Big W) so between all of these stores here, you eventually find what you are looking for.
