Choose Verdun

In step with the wider borough’s current renewal, the economic vitality of Wellington Street is in full effervescence. Engaged, loyal and warm, Verdunites are always eager to discover new businesses and, when they adopt you, it’s for a long time.

A community that values buying local

Of the 250 businesses to have set up shop on this popular street, 175 were still in business five years later. With a survival rate nearing 70%, choosing Verdun to bring your ambitions to life is a well-calculated risk.

An accessible area

Located in the heart of a calm area, easily accessible with 3 metro stations nearby, surrounded by bike paths and just minutes from the riverfront, the downtown area, the highway and the Champlain Bridge; Verdun is a year-round economic hub.

An animated community life

Throughout the year, the commercial artery is transformed into a great gathering place with evening dancing, outdoor group classes and open-air sidewalk sales. People of all generations meet there to enjoy the lively ambiance.

Action plan
Communication with members

To lower our environmental footprint and maximize
efficiency, SDCW uses exclusively electronic communication
tools with members. This includes a bilingual
newsletter published on average twice a month.

The newsletter provides a wealth of information on local
news, upcoming events and major communications
campaigns – an invaluable tool to help members keep
their fingers on the pulse of the latest skills development
and business trends.

Event communications

4 far-reaching event marketing campaigns are carried
out every year to promote the 4 major events held on
Wellington Street.

Combining print and digital media, these campaigns get people talking about Wellington Street and give merchants valuable visibility.

Joint Communications

Large-scale communication campaigns harness the
power of teamwork: by pooling resources, merchants
can use major media platforms that might otherwise be
beyond their advertising budget.

Outdoor advertising on STM buses

Advertising buys in newspapers

Métrovision (TV network in the Montréal Metro system)

Wellzine - Promenade Wellington magazine
(32 000 copies)
