Attention shoppers! A new ranking has been released and it’s all about our favourite Canadian retailers. Here’s how these stores ranked in Canada’s most respected merchandise retail stores of 2023.

The survey by Maru Public Opinion, highlights twelve stores that were selected by members of the Maru Voice Canada online panel from December 16, 2022, to January 26, 2023.

According to the results, for the second consecutive time, three retail stores have topped the list once again – Canadian Tire, Costco, and Staples, in that order.

“What’s significant for this year’s recognition is that as Canadian consumers went beyond the previous pandemic restrictions, the data collection was deliberately shifted from the last timeframe voting of the fall in 2021 to capture the height of the return to unrestricted retail pre-and-post 2022-2023 holiday shopping season,” states the ranking.

Best Buy, Dollarama, and HBC come next, in that order, and also surpass the “respect score average” which stands at 65.3.

Walmart, Circle K, and 7-Eleven fall just below the average leaving none other than Macs Convenience in last place.

“All the companies improved on their respect score but remained in the same ranked order from the previous sounding,” shares the ranking.

“The results speak to the resilience of the brands and the hard work of employees, management, and suppliers who were on the frontlines during some of the most challenging times in recent memory.”
