OTTAWA, ONTARIO - (Marketwired - Oct. 17, 2014) - Giant Tiger Stores Limited is pleased to announce the success of Giant Tiger's recent across the East Coast campaign to raise funds and awareness for the Light the Night Walk. This donation of $10,000 represents proceeds from September 2nd until October 6th.
During the Round Up Campaign, Giant Tiger cashiers asked customers if they would be interested in rounding up to the nearest dollar. The amount donated goes directly to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada. Giant Tiger Stores in Halifax and Dartmouth were both key supporters.
"Giant Tiger is proud to give back to the communities we call home," said Scott Gouthro of Giant Tiger's Halifax and Dartmouth. "I am so proud of all of the Giant Tiger stores and customers throughout the East Coast who came together to make this monumental donation a reality."
A total of 13 Giant Tiger Stores proudly participated in the Round Up Campaign to support the Light the Night Walk. In total Giant Tiger's initiatives raised $10,000 to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada, showing that together communities can truly make a difference in the lives of so many!
Join Giant Tiger at Light the Night 2014 which takes place on Saturday, October 18th!

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.

In addition, Giant Tiger provides everyday needs for families in groceries, confectionery, pet food, cleaning supplies, housewares, stationery, toys and health and beauty products.
