Shopping in Montreal, Canada
Montreal has some places where you can shop and ensure good purchases. The city has international brand stores and, in times of changing collections (summer and winter), there are usually promotions.
A place you should know if your goal is shopping is Rue Saint-Catherine, one of the main streets in Montreal and has a huge variety of establishments, from popular and department stores to the most refined. This street is excellent for shopping, has a little bit of everything. Among the stores in the region are Apple, Victoria’s Secret, Maison Simons – a department store great for buying clothes – and Sports Experts – indicated for those who want to buy clothes for cold weather.
On Rue Saint-Catherine are the Place Montreal Trust malls and the Center Eaton, which is one of Montreal’s main shopping centers, as well as Alex Nihon, a little further west of the center. These malls are connected to the underground city of Montreal, which is another excellent place to shop as it has stores along its length. There are several shopping centers close to each other and, as the underground city is heated, it is a relief to shop and at the same time be able to enjoy a pleasant temperature or escape the snow in winter. To find affordable products, visit stores like Marshalls, Dollarama and Canadian Tire.
To buy souvenirs, walk along Saint-Paul Street, which has several shops with articles related to Canada and Montreal… There you can guarantee a souvenir for friends and family, since the variety of products is wide. Another option to buy souvenirs and see some boutiques is to go to the Bonsecours Market, which for many years has been a public market. Speaking of the market, be sure to visit the Marché Jean-Talon, where you will find great fruits and several ready-made foods that guarantee a good lunch or snack.
