Every day it seems a retailer adds a shopping app hoping to atttract buyers to the store. Canadian Tire is no different. The new app allows you to search, browse shop by department, find the nearest store based on GPS technology and browse the current flyer.
The Canadian Tire app adds one feature however, that makes it stand out from the rest.
You can scan the bar code on any product in the store and the app will show a full description, the list price at canadiantire.ca and features as well as reviews written by people who bought the product.
I tried the app out on a recent visit to my local Canadian Tire store and found it surprisingly helpful, especially for finding more information about products such as tires which don’t normally have a lot of detail on the display.
The Canadian Tire Mobile app is a handy little addition to your smartphone and well worth the download. Get it for free at the Apple App Store, Blackberry App World or Android Market.
