On Saturday, April 4, 2009 Giant Tiger Stores Limited will celebrate the official grand opening of its second store in Scarborough with a charity BBQ. The 18,000 square foot store is set to open at 3750 Lawrence Avenue East, at Scarborough Golf Club Road in Scarborough.
Doors open for Saturday's grand opening at 8 a.m. after a ribbon cutting and speeches. A charity BBQ offering a hot dog and a drink for one dollar starts at 9 a.m. All proceeds to go to support two local causes: The Girls Club at Tecumseh Senior Public School and the Aisling Discoveries Child and Family Centre.
Store manager Jimy Tsoutouras and his team want to raise funds for these great organizations while celebrating the opening of the store. The fun-filled day will have plenty of free activities for kids of all ages including clowns, music, face painting, balloons, treats, temporary tiger tattoos, in-store specials, and even a visit from the Giant Tiger himself!
"We are all very excited about our second location in Scarborough," says Jeff York, President and COO of Ottawa-based Giant Tiger Stores Limited. "Giant Tiger is an affordable and convenient destination for fashion clothing, groceries and everyday basic needs. Our stores are a clean, neat, bright, friendly and fun place to shop. Customers say shopping at Giant Tiger is always a treasure hunt, as new merchandise arrives every week!"
