Giant Tiger plans to close its Hull, Que., store in March.
The historic store was one of the first in Giant Tiger’s history when Ottawa businessman Gordon Reid started the chain.
"After much consideration, we will be closing our Giant Tiger store at 123 Rue Eddy effective March 27, 2020. This was a decision we did not make lightly", stated Alison Scarlett, a spokesperson for the discount chain.
Giant Tiger has 259 stores across Canada.
New stores will open this year in Thunder Bay, Sault.Ste Marie, North Bay and Chicoutimi, Quebec.
