Great storage unit
I purchased this on sale and have been very happy with it. Although it took a bit of time to assemble, the finished product looks great. I appreciated that when assembling, the pieces could be turned any way (I've had a lot of frustration in the past when I realized I got a side on the wrong way). Even adding the doors was a breeze, and unlike others' complaints my doors line up perfectly.
I've been using this for about half a year and highly recommend it to others.

Happy with this purchase
Other than being heavy and requiring help to assemble I love this unit. I have moved it twice from apartment to apartment and had no difficulties with it shifting or falling apart. I've had many compliments on it and have sent everyone to Canadian Tire to get their own. Shelves hold all my extra foods, canning equipment, etc.

A Bit Disappointing
In the ad the product looks great, and for some reason I thought the doors were real glass. They are actually a thin honeycomb plastic like the plastic sign companies make signs on (like the yellow signs in the sign department at Cdn Tire). So they are very thin and are not well supported so could be punched in very easily if accidentally hit. The pieces of the pantry are also thinner than usual - about 1/2 inch whereas most Cdn Tire cupboards and pantries are about 5/8 inch thick. This pantry is now showing at $44.99 but this might be a mistake because I paid $119.99 and that was on sale at Cdn Tire. The box is extremely heavy but I expected that. Unfortunately, the manufacturer put the hardware somewhat loose inside, i.e. the screws, hinges etc are in a plastic bag, and the metal handles were not, and none of it was fastened down, so as the box got moved around being delivered to Cdn Tire, being put on the shelf, being taken to my house etc. the hardware made bad rub marks on the two biggest pieces of the cabinet. These rubs not only took off the finish but made shallow holes in the product, and this was on what would be the outside of the cabinet. It really looks bad. The box was completely sealed and new so this happened within the box, not done by someone who opened the box previous to me. Cdn Tire has had some special buy (code 199) pantries in the past weeks that are much superior to this one and lower in price as well. This one is not worth $119.99.

Well i had a good experience with this Cabinet. It looks good from outside. I has nice doors made with frosted glass with nice handles.It has many other features like, it's very long and wide in size. Its very comfortable and also adjustable. It has nice two fixed shelves where you can store multiple items like clothes, cosmetics, shoes, jewellery,etc. Its very light in weight and easy to move. You can easily store folded clothes and and it looks sharp too. It has good quality and best hardware for household purposes.

everything seems to be made of partical board
Knowing that the quality would be what it is, being made of partical board, and cardboard backing, assembly was easy not the sturdeist thing I have put together but considering it's height not supprizing at all. A simple fix was to screw a 1x3 pine backing board inside cab at the top to some studs ,I then squared up cab and screwed it to the pine backer from the top, was going add another at the bottom but was satified with just the top.

This is a very functional unit that, for the price, is hard to beat!

Does its Job
Pros: Sturdy, holds lots, easy enough instructions.
Cons: Doors never matched up(unlevel), very heavy for some people to lift/move, Glue or some type of stuff made our pantry look used and worn instead of brand new.
