Decathlon’s Canadian expansion plans are mainly focused in Quebec, in fact, company says they are planning on opening a location on Montreal by Spring 2018.

This year, Montreal opened up its first Saks Fifth Avenue store, so it's kind of nice to finally be able to shop at these kinds of high end stores we've never had before. 

Perhaps if we're lucky and these companies are successful, it will encourage more American and European brands to open up stores in Montreal. 

If only Target hadn't screwed up their market expansion, then maybe we'd have even more international brands opening stores in Montreal.
