    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A souvenir shop is a souvenir shop is a souvenir shop, right? Well, usually. But this store is a bit different. Located on West St. Catherine's, near Bishop, Harmonie stocks a number of higher-end items that not all stores seem to have.

    It was the favourite gift/souvenir shop of my girlfriend ... and she's quite the expert on shopping, I assure you!

    Eaton Centre: Your Best Bet for Brand Names

    by Lisser Written May 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Named for the now-defunct Eaton's, one of Canada's most recognizable trademarks, this bright, airy complex still attracts shoppers in search of name-brand merchandise all under one roof. Though not as big or famous as Toronto's landmark shopping centre, Montreal's version boasts dozens of stores, two food courts and a multi-screen cinema. Shoppers will find every significant North American shopping chain, and many American visitors flock here for the discounts offered by Canadian currency.

    You enter in one shop and you never get out before you ended your shopping. You are in undergroud levels within a three kilometers square location. Everything is link with grand halls and during winter you can do your shopping without being dress for outside. There are stores with every range of prices. There are many food courts at the lowest level and many events are held for your leisure.

    What to buy: Take a look at sales prices but compare because there are discount prices all year long.

    What to pay: It depends of your fortune.

    Place Ville Marie: Shop Till You Drop

    by hayward68 Updated Feb 24, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Place Ville Marie is not one shop but a huge complex of businesses including stores, restaurants, banks, theatres and more. It is part of Montreal's underground city which makes it possible to shop without braving the frigid temperatures of a Montreal winter. It is easily accessed from the Metro which makes it simple to find.
    You could probably find everything you ever wanted in this maze of stores.

    What to buy: I bought a lovely new winter coat during the after Christmas sales at a store named, appropriately, Laura.

    Ogilvy: Do I hear bagpipes?

    by excentrus Updated Jan 18, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Huge department store opened in 1912...in an amazing victorian building. Five floors of chic fashion and household furnishings. Great lunch counter on the lower level. Originally very british and staid, this store has moved into the millenium looking FANTASTIC. The service stands out. Years ago they had a bagpipe player open and close the store on a daily basis and guess what - they still have a piper in full tartan kilt that starts playing on the fifth floor and walks all the way down to the main floor playing at the end of each day...and maybe other times as well. The Tudor room on the fifth floor was Montreal's first concert hall. My first job in Montreal was wrapping gifts at Christmas time at this store..and I still remember the nice people with whom I worked.

    What to buy: Everything from Louis Vuitton to Christofle. Mac cosmetics (they have the cutest salespeople) on the main floor and great music and bookshop on the lower level. Floors of women's fashions..some pretty swanky stuff. Great hair salon! Check it out and take a look at those crystal chandeliers on the main floor.

    What to pay: Bring your credit cards!

    Address: 1307 Saint-Catherine Street West

    Directions: Near Crescent Street on Sainte-Catherine. Jacques Villeneuve's bar and restaurant called "Newtown" is located on Crescent near de Maisonneuve. Go after shopping!
