Montreal-based women's fashion retailer Reitmans recently leased a prime flagship location at 710 Sainte Catherine Street West in Montreal. The three-level space features over 3,600 square feet on each level, and is one door down from Reitmans' plus-sized brand, Addition Elle.
Nickels Deli occupied the site until it vacated the building in May of 2015. The property was for lease until recently.
Reitmans will not confirm which of its brands will occupy the space. Our source told us "It was important for the broker to find a tenant to take all the building". It's important to note that Additon Elle's space is currently for lease by Polaris, possibly providing a clue as to 710 Sainte Catherine's newest tenant.
Regardless of what happens, the location is exceptional, being situated across the street from Montreal Eaton Centre. That centre will soon see a major renovation as it merges with adjacent Complexe les Ailes. Sainte Catherine Street will also see substantial improvements with beautification plans set out by the City of Montreal.
