In advance of Canada’s busiest retail season, Giant Tiger has joined a national initiative called POST Promise as a founding partner.
POST Promise is a national, bilingual private sector-led initiative designed to help Canadians confidently and safely shop and work during the COVID-19 pandemic. Businesses who join the initiative commit to implementing five key actions, which were developed in consultation with the Public Health Agency of Canada, to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
Participating businesses are able to display the POST Promise logo which will indicate to their customers they are doing their part to protect everyone’s health and safety.
Giant Tiger was one of the very first companies to join the POST Promise shortly after the program launched in June, with each of its 250 stores across Canada participating.
“Providing a healthy and safe place for Canadians to shop for exactly what they need and want for their families is our number one priority,” said Giant Tiger Stores Limited president and CEO Paul Wood. “We’ve taken numerous steps from the onset of the pandemic, based on guidance from public health authorities, to help maintain a safe and healthy in-store shopping environment. Partnering with POST Promise is just one way our stores can publicly demonstrate our unwavering commitment.”
“POST Promise is proud to partner with Giant Tiger who has been a leader in health and safety since the start of this pandemic and shares our deep commitment to keeping our local communities safe,” said Laura Hearn, president and executive director of the POST Promise. “As we head into the most important retail season of the year this November and December, it is even more critical that Canadian businesses come together to do everything possible to protect both the safety of consumers as well as our local economies.”
