Pharmaprix is a leading pharmacy and drug store in Quebec, selling household and personal care products in addition to filling prescriptions. They operate in Quebec under the name Pharmaprix, but elsewhere in Canada it is called Shoppers Drug Mart. Both are subsidiaries of Loblaw Companies and together there are over 1,300 stores across Canada.
Pharmaprix started in 1972 by the same founder of Shoppers Drug Mart, which began ten years earlier. There have been a few acquisitions of the company, with the latest being Loblaws Companies. The company has grown over the years, with innovations such as the beautyBOUTIQUE concept, with open-sell display and excellent customer service. The company has also been moving away from just pharmaceuticals and into more household goods such as food and cosmetics.
As a member of Loblaw Companies, Pharmaprix customers can use PC Optimum points while shopping, to earn points on purchases and then redeem for future savings. They also offer other promotions such as Senior's Day discounts.
There are a number of promotions and programs at Pharmaprix, with all details available on their website. Recent news highlights include the launch of the PC Money Account for your everyday spending, and free Naloxone kits to help treat someone who has overdosed on opioids.
Pharmaprix may be a one-stop shop for most household goods you may need, but it is still a pharmacy at heart. One feature they offer is online refills for your prescription medications. Pharmaprix is also somewhere you can go to get your blood pressure checked.
