CAMDEN, NEW JERSEY

GIANT TIGER
South 6th Street & Atlantic Avenue

Chains of grocery stores began to spring up shortly after the turn of the century, but the idea of a supermarket didn't really take off until after World War II. An early version of the supermarket was the Giant Tiger store at 6th and Atlantic, which flourished from the 1930s until the early 1950s. The market was located in what had been the plant of the Camden Lace Company.

While Giant Tiger has been gone from Camden for many years, Giant Tiger Stores Ltd. is one of Canada's larger retailers. The two companies, are, however, completely unrelated.
