OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 24, 2012) - On Saturday, May 26, 2012 Giant Tiger will celebrate the official grand opening of its store in Ile Perrot, Quebec located at 25 boulevard Don Quichotte.

Giant Tiger is proud to be connected and committed to the communities we serve. We have therefore partnered with one of our vendors to hold a charity BBQ throughout the day with the proceeds donated to Le Centre d'Action Bénévole l'Actuel where you can get a Marc Angelo sausage and a drink for only $2!

It will be a fun-filled day with plenty of free activities for customers of all ages, including gift card giveaways to the first one hundred customers in store, free coffee, entertainment, music, free face painting, balloons, treats, temporary tattoos and even a visit from the Giant Tiger himself!

"We can't wait to open our doors and share our beautiful store with the population of Ile Perrot," says Denis Landreville, Store Manager.
