Hudson's BayThe Hudson's Bay Company played a fascinating role in the development of Canada—its trading posts and fur trappers were long the only Western presence in parts of the country, and for a period it was the world's largest landowner. Over time, however, the importance of fur trapping declined and the company transitioned into trading other goods besides beaver pelts. That was the basis of the Hudson's Bay stores, popularly known simply as "the Bay," or La Baie. At the Montréal location on rue Ste-Catherine, you can pick up Hudson's Bay blankets with their signature blue, green, red, and yellow stripes. If you don't want them on a blanket, you'll find those same stripes on key chains, notebooks, dog sweaters, and every other popular souvenir you can think of.

The Hudson's Bay Company was responsible for the development of much of Canada, and in the 19th century, its trading posts evolved into some of the country's grandest department stores, today often referred to simply as "the Bay." The Montréal store is on Rue Sainte-Catherine. If you are looking for an iconic point blanket—or even a thermos, iPhone case, key chain or other accessory with the famous pattern—you'll find them conveniently located on the ground floor.
