NEW GLASGOW – The store replacing Zellers will not give preference to the 55 former employees when hiring starts. Giant Tiger Stores Limited, Canada’s largest chain of discount stores, said the hiring process would begin later this year.
“We will accept and review applications from every person who applies including, of course, former Zellers employees,” said Janie Aker, Manager, Public Relations and Community Activation, Giant Tiger Stores Limited.
When pressed about whether former Zellers employees would have a leg up, Aker stated, “Every application must be reviewed and considered equally.”
The store is scheduled to open on Nov. 16.
