Read on to find out more about this fabulous Quebec retailer!
Where did you get the inspiration to create Aubaine Choc in 1983?
“Raymond Roussy created the Aubaine Choc store in 1983 to meet the needs of the people of Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean. He wanted to offer fashionable products at the best possible price to dress the whole family and at low cost. Always with the aim of satisfying its clientele as much as possible and thus adapting to its needs, Mode Choc revised its offer at the arrival of the second millennium. The opening of several new stores, the addition of well-known brands as well as its online presence through a transactional website, all contributed to the company’s evolution. ”
Based on the experience you have in fashion, what motivated you to open a deco-only store?
“We already have a decoration department in each of our stores. These departments offer home decoration products at low prices and are very popular with our customers. That’s why, when an opportunity arose in the Quebec City area, we seized it!
More specifically, it is a micro boutique of 3 000 ft² that offers decorative products in addition to a dedicated space on our online store. Thus, the customer can easily see the extent of our offer. Indeed, they can also make purchases at modechoc.ca in addition to having a space dedicated to the reception of these orders without any delivery costs. ”
What are the trends of the moment in decoration that you notice?
“The very purified and monochrome spaces are more and more popular and trendy. White and textured materials such as linen, velvet or wool are often part of the composition of these decors.
Cactus are also popular lately. They are found in many styles and sizes. They add color and zest to a room, and at a low cost.
Another style of decor that seems to be here to stay is the chic cottage style! Fur, wool or knit throws, Buffalo plaid cushions and wood products are featured in this perfect space for a peaceful cocooning moment! ”
Your blog on modechoc.ca is diverse and very lifestyle, what is your source of inspiration for these great articles?

That’s why we go through several topics: fashion or deco trends of the moment, tips and tricks to better manage family life, our fashion inspirations or news about the company. Our blog allows us to cover most of the aspects in our client’s universe. ”
