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 2013, 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.
