About
A welcoming concept store offering a fabulous shopping experience. Old Montreal General Store is nested in a beautiful 1869 building on the chic "rue St-Paul Ouest." Well located and close to all the old port attractions, our boutique is filled with great gift ideas, home decor, fun gadgets and fashion accessories. Our selection of both Canadian and imported designs is sure to please both the locals and the visitors. Four afternoons a week, Nicolas our pianist is playing for us, and you are visiting then, you will for sure appreciate the warm atmosphere and fun ambiance, you may even start singing along.

So Many Things I Now Know I Want
Jul. 2019 • Friends
My friend and I happened upon this shop while checking out the Art Galleries on Old Town. What a find!
It is in an old building, with merchandise on the main and lower floors, all displayed in engaging and charming ways. The space is tight- I put my backpack down by the register so I could move around freely.
They offer jewelry, socks, purses and wallets, scarves, notebooks, decorations, dodads and pretty thingies. Not a store to rush through. I found myself walking it on each direction not to miss anything.
In a city that seemed to have shops that fell into 2 extremes - expensive Canadian made items or cheap imported souvenirs, Le Magasin General had things that were the middle ground. Unique, pleasing and affordable.

My favourite shop
Apr. 2019 • Couples
Love this shop which provides everything you can imagine as fun, decor and accessoires articles for women and men!! Even things you have not known before that you'll need them - however, then you definitely want and need them. All that to moderate prices - absolutely worth it :)

Besides that nice piano playing...

Amazing place to shop!!!

I was in the Magasin General last week looking for ideas for gifts. My God what a discovery... They have so many unique items to choose from. The staff is very courteous and informative... I found all kinds of little unique gift items for my Christmas shopping. I bought some for host gifts for the Holidays. I am making this store part of my little gems stores.

Fabulous
Nov. 2018 • Family
I discovered this shop while in the old port looking for gifts for my teenage daughters and their father, and found it all there. They have a vast selection of jewelry, a men’s section, purses, wallets, backpacks, gorgeous water bottles and lots more.
The staff was very warm and helpful, they also wrapped all my gifts beautifully. I recommended it to friends since and they too have reported really liking the product selection and variety. Thank you

A beautiful little gem in Old Port!!
Nov. 2018 • Couples
I visited this lovely little shop on Saturday and purchased two purses, a beautiful scarf and earrings. After I left the shop and started making my way back to the hotel, I realized that the earrings were not in my bag. We were walking and without a car and many kilometers away from the shop, leaving to go home the next day. When I called and spoke to Nicole, she was incredibly apologetic and arranged to drop the earrings to my hotel. I could not believe the kindness and when I got the package, there was a beautiful note and some other little surprises including more gorgeous earrings!!!! Thank you so much! This shop has a little bit of everything and is so wonderful charming. Cannot wait to come back! 💗

The Food Amazing, Service....a total disappointment
Oct. 2017 • Couples
We chose this lovely place after walking past a few days in a row. Montreal is one of my favourite places to visit and I was really looking forward to one last patio this season. Our pizza was absolutely amazing, we loved it, but the service was absolutely a terrible disappointment. Even the people sitting next to us received an order 15 mins ahead of the rest of the people at their table...lots of apologies and excuses but no solutions. Usually your table will be checked on once or twice during your meal....not once after we were served resulting in us with no drinks or even water about half way through our meal. Another couple were given menus, waited for quite a while and just left because no one came to take their order. We would have ordered more, desert even and would have gone into the shop after, but based on our experience we just asked for our bill, paid and left... We would have loved to stay. So if you are looking for great food, go here, but bring a water bottle or something...maybe even your own desert, because the service definitely needs some work! I wanted to love this place, I really did, but it was impossible.

Hidden Little Jewel!
Jun. 2017 • Couples
We stumbled upon "Le Magasin" looking for a place to have brunch.
You enter a small boutique and to the right is an entry-way into a comfy rustic cafe. I highly recommend the baguette with thinly sliced apples, walnuts, honey, and gruyere cheese. A mimosa with the baguette is a must! We thoroughly enjoyed the pianist; performing from 12 noon until 3 PM. We were at our leisure. That is, even though we had finished our meal we remained to enjoy the pianist. Can you ask for anything more? We had brunch there twice. The service was very good. Add this place your itinerary when you visit Vieux-Montreal.

Fun for everyone, a destination event
Apr. 2017 • Family
We loved Le Magasin, what a find. The store had whimsical offerings, we picked up a beautiful scrolled metal pocket watch on a chain and a fun virtual reality goggle for our 11-year-old, just insert your iphone! Our food was amazing, I had a mesclun salad with warm chicken with this cucumber and purple carrot spears and a light oil dressing. It was the freshest and most delightful salad, with obviously hand picked and lovingly prepared produce. The gin and tonic with cucumber slices along is worth the trip all by itself! The espresso was brought out way too soon before desert, and we thought they had forgotten about desert as it took way too long, but it turned out the cook must have baked our cheesecake and molten lava cakes for each person. It was well worth the wait, so tasty, especially with the piano player serenading us the entire time, and all on a Wednesday! Magnifique!!! Highly recommend for all ages. We all had a great time.
