THE END OF CAMERAS SIMON –
By Bernard Bujold-
The notorious CAMERAS SIMON photographic equipment store in Montreal is definitely closing its doors on Friday, July 28, 2017 at 6 pm. If this decision was announced to employees on Monday, July 24, the proposed closure was long considered by the owner. He was, however, waiting for the final decision in the file of the Palais des Congrès and its expansion. Unfortunately for the owner, if he hoped to take advantage of a buy back, the expropriation of the neighborhood stops at the only building located west of Clark Street (Steve Music) and does not touch the Camera Simon building!
Faced with this decision and an unpromising future, the only option became the definitive closure.
Another sad page of history that turns for Montreal in the year of its 375th anniversary…
