Sherway takes care of the West end, Eatons Centre takes care of the central/south end and Yorkdale takes care of the north. Carbon is pretty close to an Apple store aesthetically with service and demo's on floor and they more than take care of the east end. Not to mention, 10-20 other Apple authorized resellers/service centres in between. I think Apple just covers more ground that way. It would of been nice to have a flagship store but from a business/marketing perspective, this makes more sense in the GTA. And yes, I am waiting for SQ1 to get one as well but I think Sherway is awefully close.

Congrats Montreal! Only if they had one when I used to attend Concordia ;(

Sherway is close, but I think Square One is a safe distance where they wouldn't harm Sherway's sales too much. A centralized Mississauga location is good, especially considering the lack of Resellers besides Best Buy & Futureshop where Macs are pretty much a second thought.

If the east part of the GTA were to get an Apple Store then my money would be on the Scarborough Town Centre. Then again last time I checked I owed a lot of money so my guess may not be valid.

Congrats to Montreal. A bit to far to go visit an Apple store only, but if I ever find myself close I'd surely visit.

I was in Montreal for the big NO rally years ago. I guess I was blind, or the strip joints weren't as plentiful as they are now, because I do not recall seeing any.

There are plenty of strip joints, especially on St-Catherine. They're infamous for being flamboyant and easy to spot, I guess that's why everyone's poking fun.

Perhaps I'm wrong, but isn't MacDoc run out of "MacDoc's" house? If so, it's not exactly your typical shopping experience.

Assuming this rumour turns out to be true, I must say I'm pretty surprised, though pleasantly so. Does this news mean (again, assuming it's true) that the Laval Apple Store is doing really well?

Apple must see a huge opportunity in Montreal to put a flagship store here, non?

I'm pretty surprised at this. I mean, I've never really seen Apple computers doing very well in Montreal, not like in Toronto. Flame me all you want but, up to 1992, I knew almost all of the handful of Apple dealers on the island and they never seemed to be doing all that well.

My bet for an Apple "flagship" would now be Calgary or Vancouver.
