Don't knock a company that will trade you 66 old dehumidifiers for a 2002 Dodge Caravan.

(Well, actually, 66 dehumidifiers becomes 66 $25 Canadian Tire gift cards, which were turned into cash by buying car parts for repair clients, which went to an auction house that had the van up for bid. :lol: Yeah if you've ever seen that guy's videos, that entire building on his farm is full of old dehumidifiers and ACs.)

I agree with those wondering why an auto-parts store sells laundry hampers and shoes and furniture if none of the above is specifically designed to become part of your car.

I once was in a gas station in Buffalo and I accidentally pulled out Canadian Tire money, the person at the counter gave me this "wtf" look. :(

So, it started out as an auto store, and still is, but they started selling tools and accessories and everything and became a big chain across the country and whereas the niche was under-exploited they just became a massive sort of department store across Canada. Think of them as a cross between a hardware store and a department store, maybe? Plus a bunch of outdoorsy stuff.
If you asked me for the first three things I think of canadian tire selling, I would say camping supplies, bicycles, and auto parts. I mean, sure, the name might be a bit weird to people who don't live here but everyone who lives here knows what Canadian tire is about, and you don't just rename and throw away the massive brand presence they've got because you can get kitchenwares and toilet seats there.

Pimp My Ride is basically where this dude takes junky cars and fixes them up to look like they belong to Oompa Loompas. From what few things I've seen them put into cars, I wouldn't be at all surprised if they put a laundry hamper and a computer desk in there.

unless you are referring to the UK version of Pimp My Ride, in which case Tim Westwood is just sad full-stop.

Well they could just follow Radio Shack's example and just call it "The Tire"
