Future Shop

Good on returns, but other stores offer cheaper prices. Their price match program sucks, but you can price match against best buy.

Their employees are oriented to be paid on commission. If they don't make sales, they get paid minimum wage. But if they continue to get minimum wage, they'll get fired. So they are aggressive, but not knowledgeable at all. They also get a staff discount of 10% on their products.

Verdict: Recommended if you cannot find a cheaper price

NCIX

Not quite sure how this store is still in business. They don't offer cheaper prices than Canada Computers and they don't have the same reputation as Future Shop or Best Buy.

Verdict: Recommended if you really cannot find a cheaper price

Best Buy

Same owner as Future Shop, but uses a different rewards towards their staff. Compared to Future Shop, Best Buy staff are more informative and less aggressive to get you to buy. 

Their price match program is the same as Future Shop, terrible program.

Their prices are still not as cheap as Canada Computers.

Verdict: Recommended if you cannot find a lower price

Canada Computers

Their priciest are often the cheapest. Their products are quality depending ont he brand. There is no return policy and their exchange policy is only for non-functional items.

Verdict: Recommended for being the cheapest store with quality products

Canadian Tire

Originally known to only service tires, they are still able to give you a competitive deal. 

If you conduct some research, there are cheaper stores out there.

Tire 4 U

Cheap. Only $50 to change all four tires. Before it was $45 and before that, it was $40. 

I have hear many people had issues such as the bolts being too tight or lose. Don't bother with the nitrogen air, it is not worth the cost.

Premiere Fitness

Terrible. 

Massive sales tactic to try and get you in one year gym membership and when you try to cancel, they will make it difficult.

If you were to call them up and ask for their prices, they will tell you it is their policy no to tell you over the phone. They will want you to come down and they will provide a personalized sales gimmick wasting your time before willing to tell you their prices which is highly negotiable.

They will ask for your credit card and ask for a one year commitment. I suggest to not give it to them. A credit card is very dangerous and not possible to cancel. You will keep getting charge until they cancel at their discretion.

Good Life

A profit based fitness centre. Although I still recommend YMCA, I have not heard anything bad from Good Life.

If you can get a lower monthly membership price and not have to commit, then Good Life may be the better choice.

Verdict: Recommended

YMCA

Non-profit facility that offers more equipment and incentives than any profit gyms. The staff are volunteers. So you won't get the salesperson telling to buy and never cancel.

Verdict: Recommended Highly
