Peter Simons began working at La Maison Simons in 1986. Simons, and his brother Richard, took over the business in 1996, becoming the fifth generation of the Simons family to run the store. Under Peter and Richard Simons, La Maison Simons expanded outside of Quebec City for the first time, opening stores in Sherbrooke and Montreal in 1999, Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville in 2001, Laval in 2002 and Anjou, Quebec in August 2013.

Upon a visit to Paris, he discovered one of the seven existing Fontaine de Tourny pieces in an antique shop. The fountain was once located in the Allées de Tourny in Bordeaux. Simons had the fountain restored on Île d’Orléans. He donated it to Quebec City as a gift for its 400th anniversary, and had it installed in front of the National Assembly of Quebec in July 2007.


Peter Simons was recognized as a Knight of the National Order of Quebec in 2008.
