Giant Tiger Brantford Gives Back!

BRANTFORD, ONTARIO - (Marketwired - Dec. 16, 2013) - Giant Tiger Brantford is pleased to announce a donation of $3,000 to The Brantford United Way. This donation represents a portion of sales from a month long "Round-Up Campaign" hosted at the Brantford Giant Tiger from November 3 to December 3.

During the "Round-Up Campaign," before a cashier finalizes a sale, they ask the customer if they would be interested in "rounding up" the total of their purchase to the nearest dollar and donating the change towards the fundraiser. For example, if a customer's purchases total $25.50, the cashier asks if the customer would like to round up their total to $26.00, donating the difference of $.50 to the fundraiser.

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, on December 10, was hosted at the Giant Tiger on 82 King George Road, Brantford by owner Rick Fitzgerald and was attended by Cheryl Stornelli; a Campaign Associate of the Brant United Way.

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.
