In building the Distribution Centre and planning for future growth, the Johnstown site was chosen for its optimal location on the Highway 401 corridor. This reduces the total annual transportation distance by 860,000 km or more than $1 million in costs. The abundance of land and the way the Centre was constructed will easily accommodate future expansion.
This distribution centre houses our Hardgoods and Softgoods products, and is where Tiger Trucking – the transportation division of G.T. Wholesale Limited – operates from. Tiger Trucking is responsible for servicing Giant Tiger stores within Ontario and Quebec, and operates out of the Distribution Centre in Johnstown
In 2005, Giant Tiger moved out of the Ottawa frozen food facility and into a brand new 40,000 sq ft temperature-controlled facility in Brockville, Ontario. This allows us to service all stores east and north of the GTA with frozen and refrigerated foods.
In Our Communities
The Distribution Centre supports a number of local community events and initiatives throughout the region:
- Earth Day Clean Up – Associates in Johnstown get outside for a few hours on Earth Day and clean up the local area around the Distribution Centre
- Port Day – Annually, the Port of Johnstown holds Port Day; a day where the public are welcome to come visit the operations and learn about the infrastructure
- Prescott Santa Claus Parade – Giant Tiger supports the local Santa Claus parade through the Tiger Train and volunteer opportunities
