April 04, 2016 // Franchising.com // Ottawa, ON – Giant Tiger Stores Limited, Canada’s leading discount retailer, is excited to announce the official launch of its new women’s wear brands - Lily Morgan™, myStyle™ and the updated ACX Active™. Now available at Giant Tiger stores across Canada, these exclusive brands deliver on customer needs with an impressive combination of great fit and on-trend fashion, all at an exceptional value.
“At Giant Tiger we listen to our customers and the introduction of our exclusive women’s wear brands is a perfect example of this,” said Thomas Haig, President and COO, Giant Tiger. “Our core shopper is a budget and time-conscious woman who asked for a simplified shopping experience. We responded by streamlining our women’s wear assortment to three occasion-based brands and by redesigning the department layout accordingly. The new layout creates a full 360 degree shopping experience,” added Haig. “Now our shopper can find exactly what she wants and needs quickly – no need to sacrifice style for price or time.”
Giant Tiger’s new brands are inspired by its primary customer and her day-to-day life. From social gatherings, to work and errands, to taking care of herself; Lily Morgan, mySTYLE and ACX Active have her looking stylish wherever life takes her, all at an affordable price.
“Every woman deserves to look and feel beautiful – no matter her budget,” said Karen Sterling, VP Marketing, Giant Tiger. “Lily Morgan, mySTYLE and ACX Active provide our customers with stunning collections that are on-trend, fit well and won’t stretch her wallet. We’ve created brands that are for her, for less, and make her feel fabulous.”
At Giant Tiger style is not restricted by size. All three brands are available in plus size and have been adapted to fit her curves making the woman who wears each collection feel confident and beautiful.
In choosing the assortment for each brand’s collections, Brian Hession, VP Softgoods and Footwear and his team focused on spring and summer’s hottest trends and adapted them to reflect Giant Tiger’s core customer. Pricing for the three exclusive brands range from an average of $3.50 to $30.

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 2014, 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.
