The brand will take out the feathers, wash them and create new jackets for those in need.\n\nUNIQLO aims to be part of the Montreal community\nThe company works with artists from around the world in its collections, and the Montreal location has spaces dedicated to showcasing local businesses and talent.\nWhen you enter the store, there's a gorgeous section of floral bouquets, both dried and fresh, from Bell Jar.\n\n \n \n \n \n \n MTL Blog\n \n \n \n\n \n \n \n \n \n MTL Blog\n \n \n \nIn fact, anyone who went to Bell Jar's store from September 30 to October 18 probably saw UNIQLO products on display as a way to welcome the brand to the city.\nThe display will be on the first floor until November 15 and the company plans to continue to use the space to display other artists and businesses from around the community.\nThere's also an adorable kiddie section, filled with books from Montreal bookstores for when kids get tired while shopping with their adults.\n\n \n \n \n \n \n MTL Blog\n \n \n \nBut I'm sure all you big kids out there will like it, too.\n\nYou can get all of your UNIQLO favourites\nThankfully the store opened just in time for the chilly winter months and is stocked with all of the classic Heattech, AIRism and Lifewear collections.\nAnd for those of you, like me, looking for the iconic Ultra Light Down, the super thin, yet cozy jacket that you can stuff in your bag, you're in luck!
