There are few shopping destinations in the city which signal the Holiday season with as much distinction and nostalgia as Ogilvy’s - who doesn’t have fond memories of taking in the Enchanted Village or Mill in the Forest window display at St. Catherine and de la Montagne, the tartan boxes, or the sound of bagpipes as the store’s Piper marches through the store between 12 and 1pm every day?

To get us all started in on some holiday cheer the grand department store was the place to be last Wednesday for its fourth annual Ogilvy en fête shopping night and fundraiser. Taking advantage of a special 15% one-night-only discount on merchandise, 2500 guests made their way along the red carpet and into a buzzing atmosphere with plenty on which to feast the eyes and palate.




Each floor had its own gourmet food and drink stations thanks to a multitude of generous partners, namely Buonanotte, m:brgr, the Saint-Raphael Golf Club, Ferreira Café, DavidsTea, Nespresso, BelvedereVodka, and Aqua Ovo. And while some of these lines stretched for what seemed like the length of the entire store and took some away from the goal at hand (shopping!), the results were well worth it. We particularly loved m:brgr’s ingenious beef sliders-on-a-stick, and Buonanotte’s homemade focaccia topped with pulled porchetta served up by frontman Lino Lozza! To keep the vibe going DJs and drag queens were on hand, as well as a celebrity fashion show in the fifth floor’s historic Tudor Hall.










Of course, all of this non-stop partying had its higher purpose and, as in past years, the recipient was the CHU Sainte-JustineFoundationfor which $260 000 in net proceeds was raised.  ‘Tis the true holiday spirit!
