Full Answer

The first "Canadian Tire" catalogue was published six years after the company was founded in 1928 by J.W. and A.J. Billes. While the company was originally known for the sale of tires, Canadian Tire moved into many new departments, including home goods, sporting goods and apparel. Some catalogues are still available for purchase. These catalogues are for special orders when the consumer wants a customized product.
