Ogilvy

Clothing in Downtown

Founded in 1866 as Canada’s first department store, Ogilvy has transformed itself into a collection of high-profile boutiques. When it was remodeled in the late 1920s the owner had a concert hall built on the 5th floor called ‘The Tudor’ that’s still open for viewing; there’s an interesting mini-museum outside it. Ogilvy’s front window displays mechanical toys that are a Montréal fixture at Christmas. At the time we went to press, renovations were expected to add a condo complex to the building, but it should remain open.
