Who doesn't love a good deal? I sure do. Considering that most things we want will eventually go on sale at some point, paying full price always seems like a total scam. Good news - turbo sale season is right around the corner.
That's right, it's almost black Friday. This mega sale event blowout day - originally created by our American neighbors to the south - has recently been adopted by Canadian businesses and retailers to keep up with the competition. We shouldn't complain because this means that we get access to even crazier deals before boxing day ever hits. Basically, we get two boxing days.
But with all the crazy deals going on in Montreal if you're planning on hitting up downtown or any major malls, prepare yourself - for literal mayhem. We're here to help point you in the right directions, though. Here are some of the top retailers to check out if you're hunting for some of the best deals and lowest prices in town.
