Local entrepreneurs David Prince, Jonny Goldmaker and Andrew Cohen have come up with a pretty neat concept that both present-day and former Montrealers are bound to embrace - especially the latter.
Main and Local is personifying some of Montreal’s most notable and memorable icons, events and expressions in a collection of whimsical housewares and apparel. Inspired by Montreal landmarks, local delicacies and the melting-pot mentality of the city, the partners wanted to bring the creativity of the city into something you can touch and bring home.
“We love the city, celebrate it and share it the best way we know how,” the trio emphasize in a statement.
Prince, Goldmaker and Cohen have sought out Montreal artisans to produce their exclusive giftables, ranging from 100 percent natural olive oil soaps, handmade leather valet trays, t-shirts that say "Poutine," an Expo '67 wall clock, Orange Julep earings and limited edition Montreal Royals prints.

Main and Local recently opened a pop-up shop at Place Montréal Trust featuring their bestselling items, just in time for the holidays. The pop up will be open until mid-February in this location and until 5 p.m. on December 24. Online orders are guaranteed for Christmas delivery when placed by this Friday, December 12, 2014. Online rders can also be delivered to the Montréal Trust location for free pickup anytime on and before the 24th.
I have a family member now residing in the United States. During his annual visits back home he purchases all types of articles which remind him of Montreal. He and others like him should appreciate Main and Local.
