OTTAWA, ON–Giant Tiger Stores Limited has expanded its popular GT VIP loyalty program to the Atlantic and Quebec markets. The program, which utilizes the Giant Tiger app, continues to support the discount retailer’s commitment to the complete multichannel customer experience that it said promises Canadian families’ fun, smart savings in a way that’s easy and convenient.
“We are delighted to announce the expansion of our loyalty program to the east coast and Quebec markets,” said Cindy-Lynn Steele, senior vice president, Corporate Strategy & Marketing, Giant Tiger Stores Limited. “We successfully launched to Ontario last fall and after seeing the exciting level of engagement, we are eager to offer this program to even more Canadian customers.”

Available on both Android and iOS devices, the Giant Tiger app is free and easy to download. Once customers login, they can search their GT VIP deals, browse the weekly flyers and shop online at gianttiger.com.
At the stores customers can simply scan the “stripes” barcode or provide their phone numbers to activate the deals at checkout. New deals are loaded every Wednesday with discounts on groceries, fashion and home essentials. These deals are in addition to the Giant Tiger flyers.
GT VIP members also receive member-only perks, including exclusive contests and sweepstakes, as well as partnership benefits such as restaurant and sporting events savings.
