OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 07/17/14 -- Editors Note: There is a photo associated with this press release.
Giant Tiger Stores Limited is pleased to announce the success of Giant Tiger Halifax's recent campaign to raise funds and awareness for Autism Nova Scotia. Giant Tiger Stores in Halifax and Dartmouth were both key supporters for Autism Nova Scotia and Brad Crossley on The Tour Divided. Brad Crossley is nearing the end of his mountain biking adventure from Banff, Alberta, to Antelope Wells, New Mexico, to raise funds and awareness for the cause.
"We are all so proud of Brad, and, proud to be a part of this important journey that is raising not only funds but awareness for some very important causes," said Scott Gouthro, owner of Giant Tiger Halifax and Dartmouth. "We are looking forward to seeing him back home shortly and congratulating him on all of his hard work and dedication."
Giant Tiger promoted the Tour Divided by posting information regarding Autism Nova Scotia on the Halifax store Facebook page. For every "like" received on the page and Facebook post, Giant Tiger donated $1. In addition, Giant Tiger held a "Round Up Campaign" in the store. Cashiers asked customers before they finalized the sale if they would be interested in "rounding up" the total of their purchase to the nearest dollar and donating the change towards Autism Nova Scotia.
In total, Giant Tiger's initiatives raised $6,000 to benefit Autism Nova Scotia, showing that together communities truly can make a difference in the lives of so many!

Way to go Brad! Giant Tiger and your entire community are proud of you! #gtcommunity proud.
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 2013, 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.
Giant Tiger checks out as Canada's low price Giant with our low prices every day, Ad Match Guarantee, Clawbacks throughout the store and our no time limit return policy.
