1. What is the average profitability of a Canadian Tire store?
Canadian Tire Corporation works hard to provide the support and opportunities needed for Associate Dealers to succeed. Ultimately, individual profits depend on a variety of factors, including general economic and market conditions, as well as your skills, resources, personal efforts, and goals.
2. Can I suggest a location for a future Canadian Tire store?
Our Real Estate team is responsible for determining locations for future Canadian Tire retail locations. As such, we do not accept solicitations for location or site development. This is not a consideration in the Dealer selection process.
3. Can someone living outside of Canada become a Dealer?
You must be legally entitled to work and operate a business in Canada in order to apply to become a Dealer. The hands-on nature of running a Canadian Tire store means that someone living outside of Canada would not be able to perform the duties necessary to build a successful store.
4. Can I apply with a partner to co-own a Canadian Tire store?
Canadian Tire Corporation enters into personal contracts exclusively with one Dealer. As a result, partnership and joint applications are not accepted. Silent partnerships are also not recognized, and have no legal claim on goods or fixtures in the store or on the property.
5. Are Canadian Tire stores inheritable?
Canadian Tire Corporation recognizes the Dealer as the sole owner and operator of the store. Spouses, children, or other family members who wish to become Associate Dealers are required to apply to the Dealer selection process in order to determine suitability, and would not be entitled to take over the retiring Dealer’s store location.
