Giant Tiger Celebrates 60 Years

Giant Tiger celebrated its 60-year anniversary with a livestream concert on May 3 on its official French and English Facebook pages. The event featured artists such as Gowan, Eric Ethridge, Kalsey Kulyk, and River Town Saints as well as cash prizes. In 1961, Gordon Reid established the first Giant Tiger in Ottawa, ON. Sixty years later, the retailer has grown to over 260 locations across Canada. Reid provided the foundation upon which Giant Tiger was built and established its core values of doing what is right and being proudly frugal, while making shopping easy for customers. Paul Wood, president and CEO of Giant Tiger Stores Limited, says, "This milestone reflects our roots in communities and our ability to grow with Canadians over time. Looking ahead, we remain focused on making it easy and fun for all Canadians to shop smart and save smart every day either in store or online."
