We were staring at this picture trying to figure out where this was taken. And after realizing that the store fronts were fake, we noticed you could see a reflection in the window that read "eeknO"

So finally we figured out this was taken across the street from Marche Onkee in Verdun.

Stiller also took the time to visit a couple of shop owners, including a game shop and a hair salon.
