Did You Know?

Giant Steps might be "Mom and Pop", but our prices are not.  We are actually one of the largest independent online sellers on the internet.  Our volumes will show in our pricing.  Compare us to other in-town stores.  We are across the board 10-40% less on virtually everything.  We keep our prices in line to major mass retailers - and a ton more convenient and way better selection.  This is a GIANT STEP for retail.

This new, state of the art store features 100% Eco-recycled flooring, and low voltage, energy efficient lighting set to timers to save energy. Even the giant Giant Steps sign in front and back uses low wattage, LED technology.

Giant Steps is a family run, Fairfield owned business.  Owned by Howie Greenspan -  a Osborne Hill, Jennings, Fairfield Woods and Andrew Warde Alumni - and managed by his Mother, Sheila Greenspan, who is most know as Mrs G.  Giant Steps sister store is a large 5000 sq ft gaming center in Stratford known as GamingEtc

Giant Steps' ceiling was decorated by local North Stratford School Elementary students as part of their art curriculum. They designed, sketched, and painted their masterpieces for all to see.  A donation was made on their behalf to the school PTA.
