Shopping at one of our two Boutiques: a Good Deed for Seniors, Your Wallet, and the Planet
Located in the heart of the Plateau Mont-Royal in Montréal, Little Brothers’ Boutiques offer a great variety of top quality second-hand personal and household items, all at a friendly price. With new arrivals of unique items every day, you’re bound to find a treasure just right for you.
All funds raised are donated to the Little Brothers Foundation to support its work and counter the social isolation of seniors.
Finds you can make at the Boutique
Clothing, jewelry, toys, books, and even furniture…there is something for everyone.
Anchored in the Community since the Early 1980s
Little Brothers Boutique has been an important part of the neighbourhood and community since it opened in the early 1980s. It has quickly become a place that fosters connections between volunteers, customers, and the seniors who shop there.
Our Boutique also provides the much appreciated opportunity for our Great Friends to clothe and equip themselves for free.
Our Boutique embodies Little Brothers’ values, and the profits, donated to the Foundation, allow the mission to continue. We are grateful and thank all donors and volunteers without whom La Boutique could not exist.
Our Boutique makes a real difference on many levels by:
- giving new life to second hand objects;
- offering affordable goods to its customers;
- reducing waste;
- creating a sense of belonging for seniors who come to the shop;
- contributing to Little Brothers’ mission across Quebec with its profits;
- valuing the volunteer commitment and participation of those involved;
- offering free items and clothing to seniors supported by Little Brothers;

A Word from the Director
« Since 1981, the Boutique has been working in the Plateau Mont-Royal neighborhood to support the Little Brothers mission to alleviate the social isolation of elders. With over forty years’ experience in receiving, selecting and selling second-hand items, and an exceptional team of nearly 50 volunteers and 10 employees, we are proud to announce the opening of a new Boutique on the famous Mont-Royal Avenue.
It’s a new adventure, one that will bring The Little Brothers’ Boutiques and their treasures to a much wider audience, but above all, one that will help us raise awareness about our initiatives with our Great Friends.
Thank you again to all the volunteers who are committed to Little Brothers, and without whom none of this would be possible!»David Starck, Director of Commercial Operations
