“Presse Commerce Corporation is proud of the reaction received from customers for the new stores in the McGill University Health Center six months after their opening. The MUHC combines the Royal-Victoria Hospital, the Children’s Hospital, the Montreal Chest Institute and the biggest Research Canada.

Some would say that it was a bold move to open new stores. In fact, the periodical sales in the Multimags grew by 1% when comparing 2015 to 2014. A bookstore, a newsstand and a toy store will entertain the MUHC’s 4.8 millions users of which: 47% are employees, 27% patients and 26% visitors.

Each stores offers a variety of products adapted to their specialty, but we made sure to give magazines an important place with in store giant screens to inform, promote and discover new titles.

In fact, the response has been so good since day one that the MUHC has agreed to organize a joint book fair with Multimags.”
