The company says while the performance of the retail segment of the business remains significantly above pre-pandemic levels on a normalized basis, higher expenses including foreign exchange resulted in earnings coming in lower in the second quarter compared to the prior year.

Canadian Tire also says its financial services revenue grew 15 per cent, driven by growth in receivables and growth in credit card sales, due to increased customer activity and new account acquisitions.
