Need help finding Islamic stores in Montreal

InshaAllah this finds you all well. I need some help, I know there is a really big muslim community in Montreal, and i was looking forward to doing some shopping for books, hijabs, etc, things that you can't find where i live (the middle of no where), but i've been having a really hard time finding some stores. Does anyone here know of any, i've tried islamic finder, it hasn't helped very much. There's halal meat shops and restaurants everywhere but haven't had much luck with finding a store selling books or hijabs.

Any advice would be much appreciated, jazakAllah. :)

Ah la Belle Ville!  Check out MultiVisions Bookstore in Ville St. Laurent (still in Montréal, but in one of the bordering burrows).  The address is: 851 Décarie (514 745 2276).  Take the Métro Orange Line, all the way to the end, to Côte Vertu, turn onto Décarie (you'll know you're on the right path when you see the McTaouk restaurant on the left hand side of the street).

The owner should know of other stores, but this is the most popular.  There are some more cultural and religious stores on Parc Extension and Jean-Talon.  A good idea would be to contact the MSAs at McGill or Concordia -- as I know MuslimGear and the al-Maghrib Institute use the venues after Jumm'ah to promote their wares.  It's also a great way to meet up with the Muslim community (McGill campus, Shatner Building, 3rd floor, 1pm).

Check http://www.montrealmuslims.ca/ for more info (sorry Mods if links aren't allowed, if so, PM me for contacts)

As salam alaikum,
you could try Boutique Fatima, mash Allah, they have some beautiful clothing and decorations, last time I checked they didn't carry books. You can get to it by giong to Metro Jean Talon (both the green and orange line go there). I am really sorry but I am not sure of the address, however the people at Multi-Visions should know.

JazakAllah, thank you so much, i will definitely check those out!

I`ve been to jumma at shatner a few times but maybe they dont have those promotions in the summer?--cause i didn`t notice anything, i would love to get something from muslim gear for my brother but i can`t order online and haven`t been able to find out if they have a distributor in montreal...


Thank you again :)
