I’d never heard the term depanneur before my first visit to Quebec nearly a decade ago. Called dep for short, it’s simply a convenience store that sells cigarettes, beer, wine, lotto tickets and groceries.

    Love this picture! What is the street name? This Dep looks very familiar, like it could be in the whereabouts of St. Hubert, or St. Denis street? Thanks!

    Bnojour Lucy. You’d have to ask the photog! There’s a link to her on Flicker.
