The Dollarware Project

Site F: Dollarama

Site F is located in the Eaton Centre, one of Montreal's best-known and largest downtown shopping malls. Dollarama is a large chain discount store headquartered in Quebec, and is now owned by the American equity firm, Bain Capital. The dollarware in the site is concentrated in two enormous features, the first of which is holiday-related and the second of which is more general dishware. Only a small sample of the overall site could be purchased. The customers at the time of purchase (a weekday afternoon) were overwhelmingly female and adult to middle-aged. The assemblage consisted of 21 artifacts (purchased for $19.00 plus tax) due to excavator and clerical error.
