La Maison Simons, Montreal

La Maison Simons, Montreal

Canada is well known for its rigorous weather and Montreal is no exception – temperatures can get as low as -40 °C in the winter! Proper attire is essential in order to avoid frostbites or extreme shivering, and fortunately you should not have a problem finding a solution to this matter, regardless of where you are in the city (especially if you plan on using the famous underground complex downtown). Most high-street stores carry a winter accessories line that’s filled with muffles, hats, scarves and gloves, in all colors, fabrics and shapes, giving you dozens of options to fit with your trusty winter coat.

The most popular store for winter accessories is called La Maison Simons and is located right in the heart of the shopping district on Sainte-Catherine Street West, and its prices are very reasonable. The business was established in 1840 by the son of a Scottish immigrant to Quebec and has gained well deserved reputation for offering quality winter accessories.

The store opens 10 am to 6 pm from Monday to Wednesday, 10 am to 9 pm on Thursday and Friday, at 10 am to 5:30 pm on Saturday, and at 11 am to 5:30 pm on Sunday.
