Giant Halifax open for business

Published May 12, 2016

HALIFAX, Nova Scotia — Halifax retailer Barry Misener, a fixture in the Nova Scotia cycling community for more than 20 years, has teamed up with Giant Canada to open Giant Halifax. The 2,500 square-foot store, which opened in April, is located in downtown Halifax, close to the cities' two universities.

"We were so excited when Barry showed us the location," said Steve Devantier, Giant Canada's retail supervisor. "Having worked with Barry at his other store, Bicycles Plus, I knew that he would be the perfect person to partner with. Sure, we had some challenges, but Barry's perseverance never ceases to impress me."

Giant Halifax is Canada's eighth Giant store. A weeklong grand opening celebration was held in early May, featuring Liv women's events, a microbrew beer tasting session and other events.

"I really wanted to connect with locals in the area, and a full week of events felt like the best way," Misener said.
