The sales are amazing when they're on! it's ridiculous! And My grandpa use to work for Smith and Caughey's back in the old days

Who doesn’t want to smell like a dream? An easy fix for all ages - the new Elle Saab is hot for any female. Get the great staff to help you, nail a few pressies in one go here.

Great place to buy good quality make-up, as you have lots of options, with all the main cosmetic brand counters all in one place. They also have a lot of staff to help you choose. MAC offer a great service, where you can go and get you make-up done (starting at $50), but you can then redeem the full cost of the make-over in product, so you basically buy $50+ worth of product and get your make-up done for free! You can learn a lot and ask questions from the make-up artist too, which is really handy.

They have quality products at reasonable price. Their annual sale is great. You can buy perfumes, shirts, trousers, jeans etc. This is the best place to buy designer clothing. I love this place. Great place to buy gift for your partner. Sure to impress her. Best place to buy designer stuff.

Smith and Caugheys is a total institution but never more so than when its sale time. Great products at great prices!

Nice :)

Such an easy store to get lost in...I don't always have the funds for everything there, but the sales provide great quality items across the store that anyone can access. Great staff, not too pushy, just helpful.

Great :)

Came here a few years back for a day makeover with Mac, & my two sisters : Clinique+ Bobbi Brown. They were great ladies- friendly, helpful and nice. Great to talk to. Came back here for ball makeup with Mac. Did a great job. Helpful with picking out products

Seems this store is more focused on female customers than men, and not much else for others. The entire first floor is dedicated to cosmetics, fragrances and hosiery, with less than half of the floor for mens products. Second floor has a range of lingerie and clothing, and some designer shoes. 

I nipped into S&C the other day for the first time in ages, and headed to the MAC counter for some advice and to pick up a few pieces. Within 30 seconds of arriving there, a lovely young lady asked if I needed any help and sat me down on one of the stools to be 'worked on'. She really listened to what I wanted to change about my current products and the circumstances under which I used them. She brought just the right colours, and made really good recommendations to get the best use out of the products. Unlike a previous trip to S&C Queen Street, where I left feeling like a 50 year old drag queen, I left S&C Newmarket looking appropriately made up, looking my age, and looking far better than when I went in. Throughout the session the saleslady was respectful of my limited time and was chatty and friendly throughout. She gave me some great tips and wasn't as pushy as other sales people I've dealt with before. Top service at MAC and great products.
