Even In The Rain There Is A Side Walk Sale On The Main

Every year, Grand Prix makes a feature on the Main. Until Sunday June 9, Saint- Laurent Boulevard will be blocked from moving vehicles between Avenue Des Pins and Sherbrooke.  Aside from expanded terraces and cold beers, music and sweet street food, Grand Prix on the Main allows our favorite fashion boutiques to participate in massive sidewalk sales.

Rain or shine, (although mostly rain for this weekend..), almost every boutique partakes in the opportunity. On average, the various stores will be offering their clients between forty and sixty percent off on the merchandise placed on their turf.

Check out some of our store picks that are offering the best deals and merchandise:

(1) Johnny Boy

Offering both women and men's wear, Johnny Boy carries casual street wear. The boutique's sidewalk sale merchandise includes women's shoes from $20- $35. All of their clothing is also fifty percent off.

(2) Boutique Kooka

In our opinion, Boutique Kooka is one of the trendiest women's boutiques in Montreal.  Although their most chic garments will be found inside the store, where discounts will not be as big as those on the sidewalks, sale items include sweet summer must- haves like short shorts and neon tanks ranging from $7.99- $15.99.

(3) Aritmetik

Aritmetik is boutique that caters to both men and women. The store serves a wide a range of shoppers. Its staff describes their inventory to be "clubbing fashion". Sadly, its sidewalk sale merchandise doesn't exactly match that description. Nonetheless, their discounted items are being sold for as low as $5, and the most expensive piece is $45.


Although it does not have its own boutique on the Main, POP- HDWR, a merchandise retailer that caters to skater dudes and snowboarders has collaborated with Ballroom night club, which has enabled them to set up a tent with their merchandise in front of the venue. The tent's items include super stylish tanks, beanies and awesome snapbacks. As promotion, the brand's t-shirts and tanks are being sold at $25 each or 2 for $40.

Don't let the light rain scare you away from the Main's heavy sales, which will run until Sunday, June 9 between Avenue Des Pins and Sherbrooke.
