TORONTO, Sept. 27, 2011 /CNW/ - Starting September 30, customers can depend on Canadian Tire Home ServicesTM for the installation of a growing list of items, starting with garage door openers. Following a successful launch in six cities, installation by Canadian Tire Home Services will be available across the country.

"Canadians already turn to Canadian Tire for the products and services they need for everyday life," said Duncan Reith, Senior Vice President, Merchandising, Canadian Tire. "Now, in addition to providing the products, customers can also have trusted and dependable experts from Canadian Tire Home Services install them."

Starting October 15, it is anticipated that customers across the country will also be able to arrange for installation of central vacuums through Canadian Tire Home Services.
