Canadian Tire was started in Toronto by the Billes brothers J.W. and A.J. in 1922.
The brothers purchased Hamilton Tire and Garage for $1,800, and 5 years later officially changed the name to the Canadian Tire Corporation.
In the 1920s, the brothers made some smart business choices, including moving their repair garage across the river to Yonge and Gould when the Gerrard Street bridge was closed for repairs and made it difficult for customers to commute to their shop.
They also offered a one-year unconditional guarantees on tires to encourage business, since tire blowouts were increasingly common in the 20s.
Their smart business choices helped them grow to over 1,700 retail locations today.
Canadian Tire is super dog friendly, and you can bring your pup along to even snooze in one of their provided doggie beds while you shop or get your car repaired.
Maybe their incredible customer service and dog friendly attitude is part of the reason the store is still going strong today.
Have you ever brought your dog along while you were at a Canadian Tire store?

Still headquarted in Toronto today, Canadian Tire has been able to expand into every Canadian territory except Nunavut.
In addition to selling tires and automotive equipment, the chain has expanded to sell clothing, home items and retail items as well.
It is a Canadian staple and great brand to shop at.
