Weekly wish - Simons in Toronto

I spent last weekend in Montreal. And like almost every other trip, I never have enough time to shop. Saturday on Sainte-Catherine was awesome. It was a warm, sunny day and it seemed like just about everyone was out walking.

Of course I made sure to visit my favorite department store – Simons. I could have spent half a day there but I only had an hour (my boys would say I was there forever, but I digress.) I scored big – I bought four spring/summer tops and spent a whopping $75 plus tax! What I love about Simons is how they somehow manage to keep prices very reasonable, yet offer fashion-conscious clothing. Unlike some of the bigger chains, I also won’t see the same thing on half a dozen other women walking down the street.

In addition to women’s clothing, they also carry accessories, lingerie, menswear, and housewares. Unfortunately, Simons is only in Quebec.

So what’s my wish for this week? You guessed it...I wish Simons would open up shop in Toronto. I’ve heard a few rumours but they never come true. I’d love to give more support to a Canadian company, wouldn’t you?

Why don’t you share your weekly shopping wish with Bargainista. Leave a comment.

  1. Simon's is a definite must when visiting Montreal. You really can spend hours in the place. hmm, gotta plan a trip soon.

  2. I'm thinking the next TFBB. What about you?

  3. I looked into Simons very longingly when I was in Montreal for a weekend ... but I didn't want to subject the boyfriend to a shopping spree. Damn! I should've been way more selfish.

  4. Yes, Gloria you should have. Lol!
