Giant Tiger plans to open in Wetaskiwin Oct. 8.

Shoppers, families living on a budget and area residents will be happy to know another major retailer is opening a store in Wetaskiwin.

Giant Tiger is planning on opening a retail outlet in Wetaskiwin this year, noted Caitlin Farnham, community events & public relations associate, Giant Tiger Stores Limited.

Farnham stated shoppers at Giant Tiger Wetaskiwin can expect grocery, fashion and home goods.

She also stated Giant Tiger is a complimentary retailer to any community. “We look forward to being able to serve the residents of Wetaskiwin,” she stated in a July 14 email. Generally speaking, a “complimentary retailer” would be one that offers products or services not already available or under-represented in the neighbourhood.

In addition, it looks like Giant Tiger will be a relatively large employer in the community. “The store will hire between 25-35 positions comprised of both full and part time positions,” stated Farnham.

“Those who wish to apply can do so online at http://www.gianttiger.com/category/careers.do.”

According to Giant Tiger’s website, “Giant Tiger is the all-Canadian family discount store for Fun Smart Savings.

“Canadian owned and operated since the first Giant Tiger store opened in 1961 in Ottawa’s historic ByWard Market, today the privately held company has more than 200 stores in eight provinces across Canada and employs more than 7,000 people. Giant Tiger’s home office is located in Ottawa, ON at 2480 Walkley Road.”

The Wetaskiwin Giant Tiger is scheduled for opening Oct. 8. According to Giant Tiger, the store’s address will be 3725-56th Street, which is in the Wetaskiwin Mall.
