As part of the celebrations marking its 70th anniversary, La Cordée officially opened its brand-new store at Promenades Cathédrale in the heart of downtown Montréal.

As well as becoming the flagship destination for the Québec-based outdoor equipment retailer with exclusive products, this outlet will be the only one in the country to offer its customers a mobile climbing wall!

What the new La Cordée store offers

This new 25,000-square-foot La Cordée store is strategically located in an area of the city renowned for its vibrancy, and is designed to enhance the shopping experience by encouraging consumers to try out the products in a variety of different spaces on-site.

From the outset of the creation of this new retail concept, the customer is at the heart of the store’s narrative, with everything designed to replicate a real-life outdoors experience for the customer.

Because it is located directly beneath the cathedral, the store also boasts a unique cachet combining history and design.

In addition to the mobile climbing wall, a facility unique in Canada that is sure to catch the public’s attention, the new store features workshops for cycling, cross-country skiing and hiking.

All of this revolves around a lobby and lounge area designed to encourage interaction and enable the community to rally together around their shared passion for outdoor activities.
