OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 5, 2013) - Giant Tiger will be donating gift cards to 13 shelters across the city of Ottawa. The Giant Tiger gift cards will help shelters purchase much-needed supplies for their residents this holiday season.
Giant Tiger has been providing support to area shelters for many years and is proud to continue to do so.
"During the busy holiday season, it is sometimes easy to forget that some people don't even have the basic necessities," says Greg Farrell, President and Chief Operating Officer, Giant Tiger Stores Limited. "We are happy to once again help these centres and to make a difference in the lives of members of our community."
Giant Tiger Stores Limited has a long-standing tradition of giving back to the communities we call home. It is this commitment to community that continues to make Giant Tiger a retailer of choice for Canadians.
Shelters receiving gift cards are:
Shepherds of Good Hope, Capital City Mission, Ottawa Mission, Harmony House Women's Shelter, Interval House of Ottawa, Evelyn Horne Young Women's Emergency Shelter, Chrysalis House, Oshi Kizis/Minwaashin Lodge, La Presence, Nelson House of Ottawa-Carleton, Young Men's Shelter, Centre 454 and Centre 507.
A very Merry Christmas to all and a Happy New Year!
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 2012, 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.
