Our history

Joseph Ponton Costumes is the biggest and the oldest costume store in Quebec. Open since 1865, Joseph Ponton started his collection of costumes in the back store of his barber shop located at the time on St-Laurent street corner Viger.

A french theatre company that have made a bankruptcy had to sell all of their costumes to Ponton to buy their ticket to go back home by boat. So that's how started the adventure of the business Joseph Ponton Costumes.
