The story of Simons began in 1840 when John Simons opened a dry goods store in Old Quebec that imported products from England and Scotland. The business was a success because of the wide variety of products they offered their clientele their tireless dedication to outstanding customer service. As the years went on, the company transformed to meet the needs of the times and its customers. In 1952, Simons modernized and became a specialty retailer, quickly establishing itself as Quebec's fashion leader.
The rest is history. We continue to grow and evolve, offering our customers quality and trend-setting fashion, exclusive brands, and renowned international designer collections, all in truly unique shopping destinations. More than 170 years later, the entire Simons team is still driven by the goal of reaching new levels of retail excellence.
