In recent years, online shopping has spread like wildfire with customers increasingly turning to the Internet for their retail needs. Though it is a small part of the retail market, online sales are projected to grow to $370 billion in 2017, up from 62 percent in 2012. With coupons, promo codes, emails, and not having to get out of your pajamas, it’s no surprise why online shopping has become a solid option for consumers.
While prominent retail chains are shutting down across the country, and consumers are looking for new ways to express their unique style, boutique stores are thriving and growing in numbers. One such retailer that focuses on not just the products sold to customers, but image and style at the fraction of the price is Quebec’s own, Boutique 1861.
Soundly emphasizing Parisian elegance and nestled in Montreal’s utmost cosmopolitan district, Boutique 1861 lets customers travel back in time to the fashionable glamour of yesteryear with dozens of vintage and one-of-a-kind pieces.
