We began as A & B Bargain Store in 1992 by current owner and operator Abdurahman Duldul on Queen Street in Toronto, Ontario. While working at the Ontario College of Art & Design, Abdurahman recognized an opportunity for high quality framing. The organization has since experienced many changes in location, size and business model. Its current iteration provides high-end custom picture framing. Monarch’s product line consists of art prints, 3D sculpted prints, mirrors, canvas paintings as well as providing photo correction and stretching (canvas paintings). The business offers value through a personalized approach to selling that competes on quality, relying almost exclusively on repeat customers and word-of-mouth promotion.
