About Us

Giant Tiger is proud to be the go-to destination where Canadians can shop smart and save smart with everything they want and need at a price they can feel good about.

Established in 1961 in Ottawa’s Byward Market, the privately held company now has over 260 locations across Canada and employs over 10,000 team members. All Giant Tiger locations are locally owned and operated by a team member who knows and is involved in their community.

From finding treasures to brag to your friends when you browse the aisles of your local store or shopping online for delightful products delivered to your doorstep or in-store pickup, we’re focused on providing you with quality merchandise and everyday low prices.

Friendly, the Giant Tiger is the official mascot and makes hundreds of appearances at various charity and community events, store openings, and celebrations. He has been known to break out some impressive dance moves now and again. Keep an eye out, you may see him in your town next
