French cookware brand Le Creuset has opened a Montreal flagship location, as the company continues to open stores across Canada. The retailer currently operates eight Canadian stores, and it continues to seek retail space as it expands across the country.  

The Montreal store measures about 800 square feet and is located at 2121 Crescent Street. Le Creuset worked with representative brokerage Think Retail on the deal. The building is owned by LaSalle Investment Management on behalf of LaSalle Canadian Income & Growth Fund IV.  

The Crescent Street store is Le Creuset’s third Canadian high street location, following the opening of a 2,000 square foot Vancouver unit at 2997 Granville Street (currently the country’s largest) in June of this year. In September of 2015, Le Creuset opened its first Canadian high street location at 517 Sussex Drive in Ottawa. 

According to Think Retail, Le Creuset continues to seek out retail space in selected Canadian markets, including Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver. Spaces sought are ideally in the 750 to 1,250 square foot range, both on high streets and in major shopping centres. 

Founded in Northern France in 1925, Le Creuset is best known for its colourfully-enameled cast-iron cookware. In Canada, Le Creuset is the number one bridal registry brand, and it’s consistently rated the number one or two cookware supplier to all of the company’s trading partners. It has more than 250 international mono-brand stores in 25 countries, and is distributed in about 30 countries worldwide.
