Also, I must agree, Bob who used to work in Sport Expert at Brossard is truly a good stringer. It is a shame that he quit a couple of years ago.

ok, the slip is a waiver to blame them, same kind of protection (for them) like what you do when you hand over your car keys to the mechanic (the devil's in the details).
Then physical presence or not, and it would make sense why they couldn't care any less about customer's racquets. It boils down to taking pride in the work you do, like we mentioned, the old stringer Bob.
Listen, it's been over a year, and I totally understand your frustration. My racquet was also $200 and butchered into pieces and notches (it's not just the paint job, we're talking about chucks of graphene, and carbon nanotube being expelled from the matrix). Of course I am still very bitter and disappointed, but you've nailed it, it's the waiver form, and it also boils down to the attitude + experience + skills of the stringer.
What can we do moving forward? Anyone knows about the quality of the stringer's job at the Sport Expert in quartier Dix-30 or elsewhere on the South Shore (Sani sport, Rome St.-Hwy 132)? Any recommendations?

I have a small store on the South Shore (Saint-Hubert) and I do string rackets with a high end stringing machine. I am an experienced badminton player and stringer (unlike most of those folks at SE) and have been offering good stringing services for a couple years. I've never got any complaint about the quality of my string jobs, and that is because I am VERY thorough with every racket I string.
If you want, you can come see me. For more info, check my website: https://www.lecoinbadminton.com or my facebook page (Le Coin Badminton). Prices for string jobs are not listed, but for BG65, it is 19.99 + taxes (string job included), so prices are around that.
As for paint chips while stringing, these things can unfortunately happen (accidentally of course), but it should be very rare. Good stringers should at least compensate with a free string job or something.
And for SE, the main problem is that the guy who strings your racket is most probably a hockey player or something like that. These guys do not care about your racket, don't understand what stringing a racket is and means and don't even know that badminton is a sport. You will sometimes get a good string job from them if the person that strung your racket is a badminton player, but it is very rare.
