Media Advisory: They're in Stores Now! Giant Tiger Launches the First Smart Phone Interactive Enviro Bag for Christmas

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 6, 2011) -

Editors Note: There is an image associated with this press release.

After much anticipation, Giant Tiger's Christmas Reusable Bag is now available in Giant Tiger store locations across the country (only $0.87 retail!). The exciting technology that we want to share is the inclusion of a QR (or Quick Response) Code printed on the bag itself.

A QR Code is a unique looking barcode which serves as an immediate reference to a message someone wants to share with you or to something they want you to see. In the retail world, it allows people to learn more about a business or find an offer that it might be promoting, it may yield a Web address, a coupon, useful information for consumers, etc. This information is retrieved by scanning the QR code with your cell phone (you will need a built-in camera), with the use of a QR Code Reader App which can be downloaded from your App Store.

You can now find out what additional offers Giant Tiger has to bring by purchasing one of our QR Code Christmas Reusable Bags! Scan the QR Code often and see what else is new at Giant Tiger!
