Dollarama is proud of its company history. Today we are the country’s largest dollar store chain.
Below are a few key milestones in our company’s growth.
Salim Rossy opens his first S. Rossy Inc. store on Craig Street in Montreal, Quebec.
Salim’s 10 children become involved in the business and its operations gradually expand.
Salim’s son, George Rossy, succeeds his father as president and transitions the
model to a variety store similar in nature to the Woolworth chain. He leads the
Company until his death in 1973.
George’s son, Larry Rossy, assumes leadership of the Company. The chain has 20 stores. Between 1973 and 1992, Larry Rossy grows the S. Rossy Inc. network to 44 stores.
The first Dollarama store opens in April, 1992 in Matane, Quebec with all items offered
for $1. The company grows the store base by converting existing Rossy stores to the
Dollarama concept and opening new locations. The company opens its first store
outside Quebec – in Grand Falls, New Brunswick.
Dollarama opens its first store in Ontario.
Dollarama acquires 60 locations from a retail chain bankruptcy, dramatically expanding
the company’s presence in Ontario. Dollarama opens a new 356,675 square foot ware-
house facility in Montreal.
Dollarama expands into Western Canada – opening a store in Manitoba. The Company
also opens a new 269,950 square foot warehouse facility in Montreal.

Dollarama opens its 500th store in Ottawa, Ontario.
Dollarama successfully implements the introduction of three new price points:

exceed customers’ expectations of the quality and variety of products they can purchase
for $1 to $2. Dollarama becomes a public company on the 16th of October, trading its
stock on the TSX Stock Market under the ticker symbol DOL.
