OTTAWA, ONApril 26,2021 /CNW/ – Giant Tiger is celebrating its 60-year anniversary with a livestream concert on Monday, May 3 2021 at 7:00PM EST on the retailer’s official Facebook pages, Giant Tiger Facebook, and Tigre Geant Facebook. This important milestone commemorates Giant Tiger’s longstanding presence in communities across Canada, as it continues to adapt to its customers’ changing and diverse needs and provide them access to great fashion, home, seasonal and grocery products at everyday low prices.

This purpose, together with our unwavering commitment to our customers and communities, has been at the heart of Giant Tiger for 60 years and will continue to be who we are for many more.”

To celebrate with Canadians from their homes, Giant Tiger/Tigre Geant is hosting a bilingual virtual birthday party featuring performances from iconic Canadian artists such as, Lawrence Gowan from The Styx, River Town Saints, country music singers Kalsey Kulyk and Eric Ethridge, as well as Vincent Vallières and Guylaine Tanguay.

We cannot think of a better way to kick off the next 60 years of our iconic brand,” says Cindy-Lynn Steele, Senior Vice President Marketing and Strategy, Giant Tiger Stores Limited. “This celebration will help bring people together to commemorate our sixtieth and to share fond memories of Giant Tiger throughout the years.  It’s our way of saying thank you to our customers and our communities for allowing us to continue to serve them and do what we do best”.
