Electronically prepared for back-to-school time in Montreal

The new school year is upon us. This is an excellent time to ensure that the electronic tools of your young schoolchildren are up to date. Computer, tablet, display, desktop ... is everything ready and up-to-date? Here are some Montreal stores where you can shop with confidence.

Accès Electronique

43, boul Brunswick, Dollard-des-Ormeaux, QC H9B 1P7

Located on Brunswick Boulevard in Dollard-des Ormeaux, the Montreal store of this chain of five stores (Quebec, Trois-Rivières, and Lévis) offers a full range of electronic equipment and accessories needed to properly connect your young students. If the location is far from you, it is always possible to order online, of course!


2201, rue Sainte-Catherine E, Montréal, QC H2K 2J3

A veritable institution in the east of the city, the store located on Sainte-Catherine Street East has been offering, for over 30 years, computer equipment for every budget, in addition to its home service and repair workshop. And one can also obtain the online service.

Maddison Electronique Inc

382, boul des Laurentides, Laval, QC H7G 2T8

Like with Addison, you can find at Maddison (no, the companies have no connection) everything that is required to connect and successfully operate computers, tablets, mobile phones and more. The business is located on Des Laurentides Boulevard in Laval.

The Source

272-150, rue Ste-Catherine O, Montréal, QC H5B 1B4

This chain that replaced our good old RadioShack has stores all over the city. There is a bit of everything there (laptops, tablets, smart phones, gaming, cabling, speakers, etc.) and sales are frequent there. See the online circular.

Best Buy

460, rue Sainte-Catherine O, Montréal, QC H3B 1A7

After the closing of the stores of the FutureShop chain, Best Buy became the de facto great retail chain for computers, tablets and components. You can find everything there for the new school year, and not just computer hardware: backpacks, pens, binders, calculators and furniture. One stop for buying everything.

The croissant: adored by all, straight from the Magdalen Islands to Montreal! For the sixth year running, we're celebrating this popular pastry with the 2017 Montreal Croissant Festival. To mark the occasion, 96 artisanal pastry chefs will be joining forces on May 6, 2017 to offer you a croissant for just $1. You'd be crazy to miss it! Here are some of the places in Montreal where you can enjoy a taste: [image credit iStock]
From 21 to 29 January 2017, la Tablée des chefs – an organisation whose mission is to provide food to people in need and educate young people in the culinary arts – and Valrhona are teaming up to bring you the Grande tournée du chocolat chaud. Try delectable hot chocolates for $4 each, with 50 cents from each purchase being donated to la Tablée. Here are a few of the Montreal establishments taking part! [Photo: Donat Boivin]
The croissant is a staple in kitchens all across Quebec, from Montreal to Îles-de-la-Madeleine. So it's only fitting that this perfect pastry would get its very own festival. On April 30, 2016, 75 artisanal pastry chefs are joining forces for the fifth annual Croissant Festival, where croissants of all kinds will be on offer for only $1. Here's where to go to get your fill of flaky, buttery goodness.
