Dress well for the back-to-school season in Montreal

You’ve thought of the books, pencils, rulers, erasers, backpacks and lunch boxes that will be used during the year, but have you thought about clothes? The back-to-school season provides the perfect opportunity for refreshing your child's wardrobe. Here are a few Montreal boutiques that will help you ace this assignment.

Friperie Renaissance

Why not visit a thrift store to find back-to-school clothes that are high quality and affordable? Boutiques Renaissance carries children’s clothing that has been gently used and with options for children of all ages. Many parents visit Renaissance Shops (Boutiques) to drop off clothes that their children have grown out of so that other parents can benefit from them. These shops are found everywhere in the city.

Souris Mini

150 rue Sainte-Catherine O, Montréal, QC H5B 1E9

Souris Mini boutiques are found throughout Quebec, and four of these businesses have set up shop - or rather, shopping centres - in Montreal.
