Shopping and Design

Visitors and Montrealers alike adore shopping in the heart of Montréal. The charming Victorian setting of the Museum Quarter offers an abundance of exclusive boutiques, haute couture salons and renowned art galleries. Nearby, sheltered from the weather, Montréal’s remarkable underground pedestrian network offers over 18 miles (30 km) of walkways past some 1,700 businesses of all types. Just above, the celebrated Sainte-Catherine Street boasts the largest concentration of stores in Canada. This vibrant street is home to the most extensive collection of fashion boutiques and ready-to-wear shops in the country.

A stone’s throw away from downtown Montréal’s frenetic energy, the craft shops and antique dealers lining the picturesque streets of Old Montréal take you back in time for an unforgettable shopping experience. And just outside the downtown area, a profusion of trendy neighbourhood boutiques promise original designs, unconventional fashion finds, and the latest in style and comfort, all in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.

Visit the Tourisme Montréal Web site for great fashion finds and shopping ideas.
