TORONTO, Ont. — If you aren’t already collecting Canadian Tire money, you may want to start.
The 23 roadside fuel stations and convenience stores under construction in Ontario will be operated by Canadian Tire when they re-open, the company has announced.
The service centres, located along Hwys. 400 and 401, will feature modern facilities for fueling, shopping, resting and quick-service dining, the company claims.
The service stations will be operated by Host Kilmer Service Centres, with Canadian Tire providing the fueling and convenience store facilities.
“Automotive is a key differentiator for Canadian Tire and a competitive advantage,” said Michael Medline, president of Canadian Tire Automotive. “These highways are the busiest in Ontario. We estimate the sites will generate six million incremental transactions a year and will help us develop new and longstanding relationships with customers.”
He confirmed Canadian Tire money will be awarded to customers.
“There is great value for consumers and the company in offering Canadian Tire Money that can be redeemed within minutes of getting off the highway or at any of our 479 stores across the country,” Medline said in a statement.
Ontario’s 23 service centres will be the first LEED Silver-certified facilities in Canada, the company said. Seven sites are already under construction and as many as 20 will be open for business by the end of 2012.
