10 signs that you are devoted to shopping at Tiger
The posh Danish €2 shop that will slowly take over your life.

HAVE YOU ANSWERED the call of Tiger yet?

The Danish answer to the €2 shop first hit our shores in 2011, and is now providing a higgledy-piggeldy mix of random objects to folks in Dublin, Galway and Cork.

Since 2011, Tiger has gradually amassed a legion of cult fans in Ireland who will defend it to the death. How do you know you’re a Tiger fan? Well…

You quite literally cannot stop yourself from going into one as you pass by

The pull of Tiger is irresistible. All those low-cost fancy goods…

You get frustrated with people who have clearly come in the wrong way

You are aware that it’s quite difficult to find something not covered in moustaches

Moustache-shaped scouring sponges, eh? How delightfully quirky! We’ll take five packets.

You have bought gifts in there, and you are not ashamed of it

Your office Secret Santa recipient was only delighted to receive a bunch of cutesy crap from Tiger, you’re sure of it.

You have every type of kitchen utensil, regardless of whether you need it or not

Cheese slicer, meat thermometer, tea infusers. Just in case.

You also own things you can’t possibly explain

A harmonica. Three packets of googly eyes with lashes. A miniscule storage tin, patterned with Russian dolls. Why? Errr…

You actually get mad when they don’t have the phone charger you need in stock

You mean I actually have to go somewhere else and spend more than €7 on this thing? You’re having a laugh.

You talk about it all the time

Saying “Yeah, I got it in Tiger!” is now as natural to you as “Thanks, Penneys”.

You have an expert ‘Tiger sense’

Basically, this is your brain:

“I just realised I desperately need a peach-coloured candle. There is a Tiger store approximately *sniffs the air* three kilometres away.”

You know it’s nothing more than a €2 shop, but it still makes you feel fancy


Those expertly designed Danish products. That clearly laid out shop floor. Heaven.
