History & Milestones

The original group included stores in Montreal, Ottawa, Quebec City and Winnipeg. Aldo Bensadoun known today as a global shoe giant built his empire starting in Montreal. After four generation, the Bensadoun family continues into the shoe industry. “Mr. Bensadoun never intended to follow in the footsteps of his father, a shoe retailer in Morocco and France, or his grandfather, a cobbler in Algeria”. Aldo Bensadoun learned Italian to better communicate with his suppliers in Italy, and eventually he cut out the middleman who serviced him between Canada and European manufacturers.
