Great Cana­dian Dol­lar Store open­ing soon in Kingston


The Great Cana­dian Dol­lar Store is set­ting up a new shop in Kings County.

Work is un­der­way to have a Kingston lo­ca­tion open later this month.

“We just have a ten­ta­tive date right now and the ten­ta­tive date is Oct. 19,” said Great Cana­dian Dol­lar Store owner Kevin Kane.

Some em­ploy­ees have been selected, but the hir­ing process was still un­der­way as of Oct. 1. Kane an­tic­i­pates that about a dozen em­ploy­ees will be hired for the new loca- tion along Bridge Street in Kingston.

In the last 25 years, the Great Cana­dian Dol­lar Store com­pany has grown to in­clude 118 lo­ca­tions through­out the coun­try. Set­ting up shop in Kingston is all part of a broader ex­pan­sion goal Kane has in mind.

“The land­lord in­tro­duced us to the lo­ca­tion. We thought it was an ex­cel­lent lo­ca­tion - very vis­i­ble, and the pop­u­la­tion is there,” he said.

“We’re try­ing to get into ev­ery com­mu­nity where we don’t have a store.”

Any­one in­ter­ested in in­quir­ing about job open­ing can visit the store be­tween 8 a.m. from Mon­day to Fri­day and ask for Char­ity or Ju­lia.
