The brand new 19,600 square foot Giant Tiger will be located at 677 Stafford Street. Giant Tiger stores are stocked with affordable, on-trend home and family fashions, brand-name groceries and everyday necessities at low prices. Giant Tiger is committed to saving Canadians time and money through our lower price program, flyer, and our ad match guarantee. For you. For less. Every day!
