It can’t be said enough — buying local helps Quebec’s economy to grow. At Chico, we believe it’s important to encourage the province’s brilliant entrepreneurs who design, manufacture and distribute quality products and help create jobs in the province. That’s why we proudly source products from local companies. Find out more about our major partners in this article.
Bleu Lavande shampoos, Miouf cookies and Land Art supplements
At Chico, we guarantee you’ll fall in love with the products from the three following Quebec brands:
Bleu Lavande shampoos
Bleu Lavande is a Magog-based company that creates rinse and no-rinse pet shampoos infused with true lavender essential oil. Their gentle and soothing formula is designed for your pet’s natural pH levels. All Bleu Lavande cat and dog shampoos are biodegradable, vegan, gluten-free and contain hydrating hemp seed extracts. They’re an ethical and eco-friendly choice.
Based in Terrebonne, Miouf creates colourful artisanal treats for your pets. They’re made with love out of natural, healthy ingredients. Their peanut butter treats are sure to please even the pickiest pooch. If your pet has a birthday coming up, you can order gift-wrapped cookies that come with a small bottle of lavender essential oil and a heart-shaped decorative accessory. Cuteness overload!
Land Art supplements
This Varennes-based company develops natural liquid supplements. The following three formulas can be found at Chico:
- Maxi-Flex. This formula is specially designed for aging pets. The high-quality glucosamine sulfate concentrate helps maintain healthy joints and muscles. It also helps promote your pet’s vitality and can prevent or delay arthritis.
- Collagen. This formula is made with premium hydrolyzed collagen to help rebuild connective tissue. It also nourishes your pet’s joints, bones, teeth, skin and coat.
- Omega-3. This omega-3 formula is made from the oil of small, wild fish, which makes it easier for cats and dogs to digest than plant-based versions. This supplement relieves dry, itchy skin, contributes to a glossy coat and prevents hair loss.

Chico: a Quebec institution
Did you know that Chico is the largest chain of neighbourhood pet stores in Quebec? The first Chico boutique opened its doors in 1984 on Taschereau Boulevard in Brossard. Since then, over 60 franchises have popped up across Montreal and throughout the province.
You won’t be hard pressed to find a Chico store in your area, whether you live near Val-d’Or, Blainville, Sherbrooke, Trois-Rivières, Boisbriand, Montreal or Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu.
Do you want to spoil your cat, dog, fish, bird or reptile while supporting your local community? If so, Chico is the place to go! You’ll find everything you need to feed, care for and entertain your beloved pet, including high-quality food, healthy treats, crates, puzzle feeders, comfortable clothing, toys and so much more.
