Canadian Tire opens its largest store

Canadian Tire has opened its largest store in the country as it celebrates its 100th birthday. The 135,000-square-foot location occupies a former Sears site in Ottawa’s Carlingwood Shopping Centre. It is the second store CTC has opened this year under its large-scale “Remarkable Retail” format, following a store launch in Welland, Ont., in the spring. Construction on the Carlingwood store began in 2019.
