OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 25, 2013) - Last night, after the last customer left the store, a group of Giant Tiger employees and Friendly the Giant Tiger mascot got together to have fun, let loose and SHAKE, Harlem Shake that is!

"The idea came about based on a suggestion from one of our Store Managers," said Lauren Moir, Vice President of Marketing at Giant Tiger Stores Limited. "Creating this video was a great way to show that we are a really fun place to shop. Our team had a blast putting the video together and it really shows."
