If you live in Mississauga, Ontario, you may want to check this out tomorrow, but expect a huge line up, because they will be dropping 20 cents off the price of gasoline.
A Canadian Tire Store in East Mississauga at 1156 Dundas St. E at Dixie Rd, will be offering the deal tomorrow from 6 until 9 a.m., in celebration of the grand re-opening of their store. "We'll be offering it at 20 cents off again," said Lisa Gibson a spokeswoman for the company.
They pulled the stunt today at the Queensway store in Etobicoke, selling gas at 80.3, which is a price that seems to remain a distant memory these days. The lineups were massive of course. Just look at the picture.
One man who spoke to a Toronto Star reporter, said that he waited for 45 minutes to fill up, but felt that it was worth it. "Because I just saved $20, and that's the equivalent of an hour's pay."
The promotion is part of Canadian Tire's "Concept 20/20" program, according to Lisa Gibson, because the renovated store "provides 20 per cent more retail space and extra product categories."
I guess it's not a problem to cut the price of gas, if you're going to absorb the extra cost. Or maybe it really is that cheap to buy gas and we're getting ripped off. Makes me wonder. Things were not so pretty for the man who tried to cut a mere 2 cents per gallon off of his gas bar's prices for seniors, according to Picaso's story from this past Tuesday.
