Canadian Tire Flyer Proclaims Livestrong 10 & Livestrong 13 Treadmills are 60% Off? Off of what?
Canadian Tire Flyer Proclaims Livestrong 10 & Livestrong 13 Treadmills are 60% Off? Off their regular price they claim! Funny thing though, they have never offered these treadmills at their regular price. Regular-def.- usual, normal, ordinary....

The current Canadian Tire Flyer "regular" prices are disturbingly similar to the Manufactuers Suggested List Prices(MSRP)
The latest Canadian Tire flyer offers "60% off" of a treadmill price that a major US retailer says no one may have ever paid, according to Mr. Dave Ross, owner of Ottawa's most trusted fitness superstores-
Mr. Ross says that “with other consumer products like TV’s, appliances and cars, if for instance a dealer advertised 60% off on a car a year or even two years old, most consumers would think something must be drastically wrong with the vehicle, maybe a head on collision! Mr. Ross went on to say, “most people would assume the ad has a typo, the “List Price” is based upon creating an appealing discount price.”
Some web research shed a lot of light on Canadian Tire pricing and advertising practices. The most recent fitness equipment in question are the Livestrong® LS10T and LS13T Treadmills. Canadian Tire advertises it at a “Sale” price of $799.99, and they say that their “Regular” price is $1999.99.”
“We are all used to seeing retailers offer what seems to be an inflated MSRP (manufacturer’
One can find the LS10T on Runreviews.com, a major running and jogging website. There the treadmill magically appears when you set your price at the “$500 to $1000” setting. Dick’s Sporting Goods’ website, a major retailer in the US, sells the LS10T regularly for $799.98!?!
“If no sales may have occurred at that price according to one of the world’s largest online sports equipment retailers,” Mr. Ross wonders “how many has Canadian Tire sold for $1999.99 in Canada?”
Mr. Ross added that he "just wants a level playing field in the fitness industry, especially because Fitness Depot (http://www.fitnessdepotottawa.com) offers Canada wide lowest price guarantees."
"I visited two Canadian Tire locations in Ottawa the same day,” says Mr. Ross, Ottawa’s favourite fitness dealer. “The best deal I saw on snow blowers, for example, was $100 off a $1249.99 machine. I didn’t see any snow blowers 60% off!” Because Fitness Depot will, day in and day out, beat any price one can get in Canada, Mr. Ross says “Fitness Depot cannot offer huge discounts like 60-70 %, we simply do not make nearly that much on a machine. For instance Fitness Depot’s latest price drop (meaning permanent) on treadmills offers some truly great deals; the industry leading Precor machines pictured here are featured because Precor has lowered the price for them for good. “Fitness Depot is similar to Costco in that we operate on low margins, margins that do not allow for half or more off of what is the guaranteed lowest price in Canada already.”
