hah I do the same, I get my nike dri fit stuff for the gym there and track pants. I'm moving to the west island but that mall has been dead for years. I used to go to Gym Zone which is in there too, but Winners is the only thing carrying that mall. They might as well take it down and build something else there.

Btw, PF changs is opening up right near Marathon. Thank god they are coming in here before any new language laws come about because I love PF changs and wouldn't want them scared away by the political BS we have in this province. We already don't have a lot of chains/stores because of the language nonsense..

I live 5 minutes walking distance away from Cavendish mall. It is now called Quartier Cavendish haha.

Basically the IGA, Pharmaprix, SAQ and the movie theatre are still there.

You also have hair salons, the food court (McD, chinese place and a Jewish restaurant), TD, Scotiabank and a bistro. It also has a CLSC and Bureau en Gros attached to it.

It is really small now and contains just essentials.

As for Decarie Square, it's a ghost town. There is a sports shop at the entrance is there not? It also had a Kosher restaurant that was closed because of rats hahaha

PF Changs on decarie?

That's overpriced american chain fake Chinese food... can't wait!

Worst hot-n-sour soup I have ever tasted though (tangy soya sauce).

Essentially it's like every other american chain restaurant...

Welcoming and friendly.

Comfortable and large.

Food looks great on the menu, even better when it arrives.

Taste really good until about past the half way point of your meal... by the end of the meal, you start getting ill and are getting an allergic reaction, such as breaking out in a sweat and feeling very itchy.

By the time the bill is paid you have already been to the toilet and are vowing to your loved one that you will never eat at this establishment again.

Repeat every 6 months.

I remember this, Elias used to be a Concordia employee in the Journalism department and he told us that story. Pretty funny how non-stories like this one can be overblown by store employees who have nothing better to do. Then again, working in ghost malls must be pretty disturbing.

Most Centre-Ville Malls are crap & full of discount stores in all major Cities. Montreal has a Metro System & Ste-Catherine Street were all the good stuff is minutes away.

I wonder if one day Rockland Center and La Baie will end up looking like Decarie Square.
lol what kind of stuff are you smoking to think marathons is elegant?
on top of that you have a baton rouge right next to it and you chose marathons for an elegant example? you my friend are funny (i'm not saying it in a bad way you actually made me chuckle)

and about rocklands, you forget that it's not a parc ex mall as much as it is a tmr mall...
there expensive boutiques and the mall has been renovated almost 3 times in last 15 years...with many high end stores opening in the area. Many chosing rocklands over marche centrale.
