What are the most common/chain supermarkets in Montreal?

I know there is an IGA near my hotel. But I read or saw some other names just not sure if there of the larger supermarkets? Metro?

Thanks

IGA, Métro, Provigo, Loblaw's. More into the burbs you will see Maxi, and others.

Downtown, your choices are limited. IGA is the only choice near the downtown hotels. There are some small groceries here and there.

There is a Adonis which opened up but that is to the west, and might be a little out of the way. Unless you are planning to stay for awhile, i wouldn't make the treck.

If we knew where you were staying, we could give you a better list.

There's a Provigo on Parc, just north of Sherbrooke (Provigo = Loblaws/Superstore products).

Hmm and there is also a Metro grocery on de la montagne and Notre-Dame. Good if you are staying at Marriott Chateau Champlain or other hotels near the train station.

There is also a Metro on Parc at Prince Arthur in the La Cite complex. There is a Provigo on the corner of Parc and Sherbrooke. The closest blahblahs (Loblaw's) is likely Angus, which is a bit far for a tourist. There is also a Stuper C (Super C) at the Atwater Market.

Provigo is owned by Loblaws ... which operates as Superstore in BC.

Then IGA at Complexe Desjardins, just one blok from your hotel, will do. The choice they carry is very good indeed.

You're also next to Chinatown for SE Asian food, and up a few blocks there is a tired Bangledesh grocery and on Ontario a place that has Indian sweets and Samosas and beside it a halal butcher. If you continue up Saint-Laurent, you'll hit a Pain Doré bakery with great baguette (although your IGA will probably have Première Moisson stuff, which is another chain and is similarly good), and even further up, a small place with a few latin american groceries and products, a Slovenian butcher, a Hungarian one, the wonderful Veille Europe deli with all sorts of cheese and meats and coffee and other deliciousness, and then a Portuguese grocery store.

Just in case you were looking for variety :)
