It's looking to expand in spots where "Canadians are and Giant Tiger is not."
Calling all bargain hunters! There are going to be a lot more Giant Tiger stores in Canada going forward, as the company has pretty big plans for expansion in the future.
In an emailed statement shared with Narcity, a representative from the discount retailer confirmed that it is "working towards" increasing its store count to 300, with locations all over the country.
The company's CEO and president, Paul Wood, stated that there is no set date for the planned expansion, however, as the goals are "dictated by opportunity — not trying to hit a specific target."
