Canadian Tire Petroleum was introduced in 1958. They were the first large corporation to introduce gas bars at store locations and has now become one of the powerhouses of Canada's gasoline retailers. There are now over 270 CTP gas bar locations as well as over 70 Simoniz car washes. The gas bars of Canadian Tire are responsible for the the successful Canadian Tire Money reward program that is still in place today. One can receive up to 10 times the usual amount of rewards coupons by using Canadian Tire gas bars alone. Many other companies such as Wal-Mart and Home Depot have mimicked the idea, but have not seen the same rate of success. To gain the competitive edge, Canadian Tire has introduced several pit stops that check oil, rust, fluids, and provide various other services.
