We are pioneers and trailblazers with a rich heritage in pharmacy retail innovation. We’re proud of our Canadian roots, which date back to 1904, and are equally as proud of who we are today: entrepreneurially-minded, agile, and passionate about evolving the business we have grown and love dearly. We are also proud to be part of the McKesson family, ranked fifth on the Fortune 500, and the industry's oldest, largest, most experienced and most sophisticated pharmaceutical distributor.
With a heritage dating back more than 100 years, Rexall has evolved to become one of Canada’s most trusted pharmacy brands. At Rexall, our employees are family and our culture reflects a close-knit community. From coast to coast, store to Support Centre, we are ALL IN! Our history of helping Canadians has endured since the turn of the last century, through successive evolutions of Rexall and Rexall Pharma Plus from apothecary-type drugstores to the modern community pharmacies they are today. Rexall in Canada was established in 1904 in the early days of the United Drug Company and quickly established itself as an innovator in retail pharmacy. At the same time, Tamblyn Drugs was establishing itself in Toronto, Ontario, and would eventually become Pharma Plus.
Today, our 448 Rexall and Rexall Pharma Plus locations are supported by 8,000 staff, all dedicated to providing exceptional service and care in 180 communities across Canada. Whether it’s providing flu shots at any time* or other services within the expanding scopes of pharmacy care, offering exclusive daily living products that can help put you on a healthy path, transforming our store environments, or making sure your medications are working safely for you, Rexall is focused on continuing to evolve to meet the changing needs of our patients and customers. Rexall also operates Rexall Direct, Canada’s national mail-order pharmacy and Rexall Health Solutions, a division focused on providing highly specialized clinical care and complex medication management services in transitional care settings.
In March 2010, Dollar General licensed the Rexall name from healthcare giant McKesson Corporation, and announced that it would be the exclusive retailer for Rexall-branded products. Rexall products are in several of the retailer's categories, including over-the-counter medication, dental care, vitamins and supplements, foot care, and first aid. A lot may have changed over the years, but our commitment to helping Canadian families and communities be healthier has never been stronger; it continues to guide us as we look to the future and increase access to convenient, quality healthcare and products that Canadians can feel good about.
Rexall is a member of the Rexall Pharmacy Group Ltd., which is a wholly owned subsidiary of McKesson Corporation. *Where regulations permit pharmacists to administer the flu vaccinations.
