Canadian Tire in Lindsay temporarily closed after every item scanned comes up as “Mr Potato Head”

KAWARTHA LAKES-Customers at the Canadian Tire Store in Lindsay left empty handed this morning.

Kawartha 411 News has learned that every item scanned this morning was coming up as “Mr Potato Head” and could not be changed. No sales were being made and customers were forced to leave empty handed according to witnesses.

“This was an anomaly that occurred this morning only at our Lindsay and Whitby stores. A point of sale downloading error caused item names to appear incorrectly, however, item prices and item numbers were registering correctly. It has since been corrected and the stores are operating normally.” Cathy Kurzbock, Communications ,Canadian Tire, told Kawartha 411 News.

The glitch affected five stores according to head office.
