Thorold wants Giant Tiger

By Jen Hardy, Special to Postmedia Network

Thorold city staff is going to take a look at what it will take to catch a tiger by its tail.

A motion brought forward by Coun. Fred Neale asks city staff to look into the possibility of luring a Giant Tiger to Thorold.

Neale said most cities have one of the chain stores and he wants to know if it would be an option for Thorold as well.

Councillors supported his motion, but raised concerns about existing retailers.

Coun. Sergio Paone suggested a Giant Tiger could just be the last straw for some merchants on Front Street.

Paone clarified he is not against the idea itself, but wants the city to be careful about the placement of a possible store.
