Giant Tiger Announces Pilot Store For Its “New Store Experience” Project!
Ottawa, ON – January 11, 2012 – This week, Giant Tiger begins a full renovation of their store located at 900 Watters Road in Orleans (Ottawa). The store is being redesigned to greatly improve the shopping experience for our customers. Orleans shoppers will find even more of the same outstanding values, great deals and friendly customer service they’ve come to expect from Giant Tiger for their fashion, food and home needs – PLUS a lot more space to shop and a fun new Giant Tiger look!
Some of the ideas that will be implemented in this pilot store have already been implemented recently in the construction of new Giant Tiger store in Hawkesbury and in the expansions of our stores in Smiths Falls, Dunnville, Beloeil and Port Hope.
Bob O’Reilly (Store Manager at 900 Watters Road) and his store team will continue to operate the store throughout the renovation. The grand re-opening celebration is scheduled for Saturday, March 17, 2012.
