What to buy here: Roots Canada Clothing.

Everybody recognizes the iconic beaver! Founded in 1973, Roots Canada successfully mixes the concepts of both alpine and urban lifestyles, and has known a growing popularity worldwide since then, with almost 200 stores - but not one is better than the Montreal branch, located at 1035 Sainte-Catherine Street West, right in the heart of the shopping district (open from 10AM to 9PM from Monday to Friday, from 9AM to 9PM on Saturday and from 10AM to 6PM on Sunday). Decorated with large wooden beams and floors, forest green painting, paired with a compulsory Canadian smile and an overall feel-good vibe, the store offers a large range of items like traditional sweatshirts ($70), original watches ($150), as well as the new favorite leather satchel ($175). Roots Canada products have a reputation of lasting throughout the years, thanks the quality fabrics and sturdy built, which helps justify the expense. Pretty much all Canadians have owned a Roots item at one point in their lifetime! Such pretty Montreal souvenirs will make you want to wear them all the time - talk about something that won’t be covered in dust on your fireplace mantel!
