Fashion mastermind and entrepreneur Herschel Segal made a splash in Montreal's burgeoning shopping district in 1959 when he opened Le Ch?teau Outlet's original storefront, where he intrigued passersby with London-inspired swaddlings unique to Canada's fashion landscape. Le Ch?teau Outlet's avant-garde style of garb for men and women drew great success in the years to follow, earning one of its crowning achievements when the iconic John Lennon personally commissioned the shop to create the jumpsuit he wore during his "bed-in" at Queen Elizabeth Hotel in 1969.
The fashion retailer has since grown to include more than 230 locations in its trendsetting empire, staking its claim throughout Canada, the United States, and the Middle East. Le Ch?teau Outlet's well-dressed experts keep the shop's collection of formal and casual wear up to date on the latest styles and trends, which change more frequently than the Mona Lisa's facial expression when no one is looking.
For more than 40 years, DiveAqua has taught novice divers across Canada the subaquatic ropes. The staff's specialty is a comprehensive curriculum of skills and certification instruction that commences in the classroom, where students learn about diving safety and how to use equipment. Afterward, they gear up and head to the indoor pool to learn proper snorkeling and scuba-diving skills while becoming comfortable with the equipment in the gravity-defying environment. Divers opting for the certification participate in open-water dive sessions before receiving their certification card, which allows them to dive anywhere in the world. In addition to conducting instructional classes, DiveAqua offers a variety of professional diving gear, available to rent or own. At each store location, staff members stand by to outfit divers in wetsuits, tanks, and regulators.
