Giant Tiger Stores in London Give Back!

LONDON, ONTARIO - (Marketwired - March 7, 2014) -  Giant Tiger stores in London are pleased to announce a donation of $6,332 to the Mission Services of London. This donation represents proceeds from a two-month long "Scan Away Hunger" campaign hosted at three different Giant Tiger stores in London from the beginning of November through the end of December, 2013.

During the "Scan Away Hunger" event, before cashiers finalized a sale, they would ask the customer if they would be interested in adding a donation of $3.11 to the total of their purchase. The amount donated went to providing the Mission Services of London with one meal for one individual who relies on the shelter.

Giant Tiger Stores Limited has a long-standing tradition of giving back to the communities we call home. It is this commitment to community that continues to make Giant Tiger a retailer of choice for Canadians.

The official cheque presentation took place at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, February 26 and was hosted by the Mission Services of London, located at 415 Hamilton Road. Seen in the picture are Giant Tiger owners Marco Petrella, Jay Bourdeau and Sam Sanfilippo, along with Irma, a representative of the London Mission Services.

About Giant Tiger

In 1961, Giant Tiger Stores Limited opened its first store in Ottawa. The business was started with a very simple idea - keep the cost of operation low and sell a large volume of merchandise at everyday low prices. It is the adherence to this idea that has allowed Giant Tiger to grow to over 200 stores.

In 1968, another simple idea was incorporated into the Giant Tiger formula - franchising! Today, most of our stores are franchised so our valued customers will be better served by having the owner in the store. Giant Tiger franchise owners become members of the community, sharing community concerns and serving community needs. Giant Tiger also helps to bring communities together. In 2012, Giant Tiger donated more than $2 million to more than 700 local associations and charities across Canada.

Giant Tiger offers a large assortment of casual clothing and footwear for the entire family including, many of the latest fashion items at the lowest possible price. The identical quality and fashion items offered by major chain stores are sold at Giant Tiger, often at remarkably lower prices. In addition, Giant Tiger provides everyday needs for families in groceries, confectionery, pet food, cleaning supplies, housewares, stationery, toys and health and beauty products.

Giant Tiger checks out as Canada's low price Giant with our low prices every day, Ad Match Guarantee, Clawbacks throughout the store and our no time-limit return policy.
