Diamond in the rough: HKR
You've probably walked by the many HKRs in this city without giving them a second glance, unless you were grimacing at the neon stretchy baby tops on the models in the window. But next time you walk by and have 5 minutes to spare, take a look around the store and take a good look at the label on anything that catches your fancy. You may be pleasantly surprised to find that it's Made in Canada. And cheap. I spotted a translucent zebra print shirt for $30 that was Made in Canada, though the drop crotch pants underneath were sadly manufactured in China...
Check out the awesomely cheasy HKR website for a 25% discount! Though they make it seem like all their stuff is manufactured here, it's not or not any longer at least. But they are still a homegrown Montreal business located right here in the city.
