“Canada’s low price Giant” arrives in North Bay on Saturday.  Giant Tiger’s brand new 19,000 square foot store on Lakeshore Drive is holding their opening ceremonies at 7:40am, with the doors opening at 8am Saturday.  Vice President of Marketing Lauren Moir says they’ve been looking at North Bay and watching the city’s growth for about 10 years with the timing now right to open a store here.  And she says with that, they’re adding to the local workforce.  35 to 40 people are being employed at the new store.  Meantime, there’s plenty going on with Saturday’s grand opening including gift card and promotional giveaways, a rock climbing wall, free coffee and hot chocolate, a visit from Friendly the Giant Tiger and a charity BBQ benefiting Big Brothers and Big Sisters of North Bay.  Customers can get a hot dog and a drink for $1.
