GIANT'S HISTORY

The story of Giant started in 1944 when our very first provision store opened in Sentul Pasar, Malaysia. However, Giant first entered the lives of Singaporeans back in 2000 when the very first Singapore hypermarket at IMM mall in Jurong opened.

Today, Giant is Singapore?s top mass market retailer of everyday items, with over 60 stores located across the island. A leader in the retail industry, Giant has grown to become one of the country's most beloved brands.
