Swedish fast-fashion retailer H&M has shut its store at 450 Ste-Catherine Street West in downtown Montreal. Another larger location at 1100 Ste-Catherine Street West remains open.
The shuttered location at Ste-Catherine Street West was at the corner of St. Alexander Street on a quieter stretch of Ste-Catherine east of Philips Square and the Hudson’s Bay department store. Ste-Catherine Street has been under renovations and paving stones were recently added to the street and sidewalks.
A much larger H&M store continues to operate at the corner of Ste-Catherine and Peel Streets on a busier stretch than where the shuttered location was. In 2016 the store saw a major renovation including the addition of a fourth floor.
H&M operates stores across Canada in major markets. Another prominent street front location could shutter at 19 Bloor Street West in Toronto as the space has been recently advertised for lease by brokerage JLL.
