Just last month, Bernad Raj, an entrepreneur originally from Montreal, decided to open a third business in the Station Mall after noticing a need for a specialty bag and luggage store which goes by the name of Falco bags.
He also operates Freshly Squeezed and a cell phone business also in the Station Mall. He has experience in this particular retail area because of the fact he currently has luggage stores in Montreal and Ottawa under a different name that are operated by himself and a small group of other people. He wanted to expand in Northern Ontario and specifically in downtown Sault Ste. Marie because he noticed that we don’t really have an option for bags and luggage exclusively.
The items he brings in for Falco bags are from the chain he works with already which operate under different names in Ottawa, Montreal, and Sudbury and Bernad tells Sault Business Matters that he wants his location to be one stop for all bags you may need. The store is located in the Station Mall beside H & M at 293 Bay Street.
Falco carries an extensive line of bag options including luggage, laptop bags, handbags, fancy handheld purses, leather handbags, wallets, RFID secure wallets, gym bags, duffle bags, school backpacks, lunch bags, shopping trolley style bags, waist packs, fanny packs, leather belts, garment bags, purses, messenger bags, trekking bags and travel accessories such as adaptors, luggage covers, luggage scales, travel neck pillows, luggage tags, neck pouches, and TSA luggage locks. There is a wide range of price points available with prices running anywhere from $10 to $300 depending on what you are looking for and they aim to satisfy all budgets.
You can shop at Falco Bags during the Station Mall hours which are Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. You can reach them by phone at 705-942-7779.
