Giant Tiger is celebrating a milestone anniversary with a virtual concert.

The popular, Canadian-owned retailer is celebrating its 60th anniversary with a concert that will be livestreaming on the company’s Facebook page.

In 1961, the first Giant Tiger opened in the Byward Market. The company now operates 260 locations across the country.

“We are proud to celebrate 60-years of being a Canadian-owned, family discount retailer,” Paul Wood, president and CEO of Giant Tiger Stores Limited, said in a news release.

“This milestone reflects our roots in communities and our ability to grow with Canadians over time. Looking ahead, we remain focused on making it easy and fun for all Canadians to shop smart and save smart every day either in-store or online. This purpose, together with our unwavering commitment to our customers and communities, has been at the heart of Giant Tiger for 60 years and will continue to be who we are for many more,” he continued.

To celebrate, the company is putting together a concert on Monday (May 3) that will feature performances from Canadian artists such as Lawrence Gowan from The Styx, River Town Saints, country music singers Kalsey Kulyk and Eric Ethridge, as well as Vincent Vallières and Guylaine Tanguay.

“Our virtual birthday party gives us a chance to connect with and celebrate with people across the country with performances by iconic Canadian artists. We cannot think of a better way to kick off the next 60 years of our iconic brand,” Cindy-Lynn Steele, senior vice president of Marketing and Strategy for Giant Tiger Stores Limited, said in the same release.
