Where it all began.
Founded in 1993 by Bud and Vivian Walker, the Great Canadian Dollar Store began with a vision: to introduce Canadians to a different dollar store, one with friendly, helpful staff and extreme value. After 22 years expanding the business, the Walkers sold the company to Kevin Kane in 2015.
A franchise member since 1997, and owner of 50 Great Canadian Dollar Stores across Atlantic Canada, Kane was the obvious choice to succeed the Walkers with years of hands-on experience. Today, he continues in the original vision and passion of the Walkers.
