Shopping in Montreal

Join in Montreal's underground economy downtown - the shopping malls are linked by a labyrinth of tunnels below rue Sainte-Catherine, the main street for big-name shops. The Plateau offers quirky boutiques like Lola & Emily on boulevard Saint-Laurent and designer threads by Philippe Dubuc on more upscale rue Saint-Denis. Shops typically open at 10am (12pm on Sunday), and close at 6pm Mon-Wed, 9pm Thu and Fri, and 5pm on weekends.
