Giant Tiger.. Canada’s Low Price Back to School Giant

The school bells are set to ring in just a few short weeks and Giant Tiger is set to help kids and parents get “Back At It”.

It’s back to school time and Giant Tiger is your destination for your every day back to school needs. From on trend fashion for your kids to backpacks and stationary, Giant Tiger has what you need and what your kids want, all at everyday low prices you can count on.  Don’t forget to shop for your back to school lunches and snacks while you’re in-store. We have a commitment to price matching, no time limit return policy, and saving Canadians money every day.  Giant Tiger.. Canada’s Low Price Back to School Giant.

I admit it.  I feel a bit of hometown pride whenever I talk about Giant Tiger.  You see, Giant Tiger was established in 1961 right here in downtown Ottawa, at the Byward Market.  From its humble beginnings, Giant Tiger has grown to become one of Canada’s largest retailers, and is known today as Canada’s low price giant, loved by their customers from coast to coast for their great selection of family fashions, groceries, and everyday needs.


Did you know that Giant Tiger has over 200 locations across Canada, employing over 7,000 team members? That’s right – team members!  All Giant Tiger are locally owned and operated by a Team Member who knows the community.  Plus, Giant Tiger just keeps on growing! Another 5 Giant Tiger stores will open their doors in the cities of Guelph, Amherst, Sydney, La Ronge and Blenheim by the fall of 2014.

“The friendly local stores with the iconic yellow Tiger logo are not only where Canadians shop more and spend less, but they help bring communities together. In 2013, Giant Tiger donated more than $2 million to more than 700 local associations and charities across Canada.”

So to celebrate the start of the new school year, and to give Giant Tiger fans the chance to win some Fan-tastic prizes, Giant Tiger, along with the Ottawa Mommy Club, will be hosting the #GTBackToSchool Twitter Party on Tuesday August 26, 2014 from 8PM to 9PM ET.  And guess what?  Alyssa from @AMotherhoodBlog and I will moderating the party, and helping to make sure you have a whole hour of fun!
