Renovations complete at Castlegar Canadian Tire

Grand re-opening ceremonies took place last Thursday morning.

Castlegar Canadian Tire held a grand re-opening last Thursday to introduce the community to all the changes that have taken place at the store over the last several months. “It’s a major renovation of the store,” said dealer Bob Saari. “Everything from a new roof to new lights, to a new paint job.”

“It is a huge undertaking,” said Saari. The remodel features a new concept that Canadian Tire has called Smart Store 1. “It has all of the newest innovations that Canadian Tire has in its plan-a-grams. We have them all in our store.”

Saari is excited about the new housewares department which has expanded by almost 50 percent. “It is really a step up,” he said. “A step up in quality and broadening of the assortment substantially.”

Mayor Lawrence Chernoff was on hand to cut the ribbon and let the first shoppers in at 8:00 a.m. Those willing to brave the cool early morning temperatures were rewarded with Tim Hortons coffee, goodies from Crumbs bakery and a Canadian Tire toque and mini hockey stick.
