Shoppers Drug Mart Corporation is a licensor of full-service retail drug stores operating under the name Shoppers Drug Mart® (Pharmaprix® in Québec). Founded in 1962 by Toronto pharmacist Murray Koffler, we have grown to a national network of more than 1,240 Shoppers Drug Mart/Pharmaprix stores across Canada. We’re dedicated to improving the overall health and quality of life of the Canadians we serve. Our conveniently located stores are owned and operated by licensed Associate-Owners who have helped build a brand that is synonymous with exceptional service, value, and trust. We also license or own more than 50 medical clinic pharmacies operating under the name Shoppers Simply Pharmacy® (Pharmaprix Simplement Santé® in Québec) and several luxury beauty destinations operating under the Murale™ banner.
The Jean Coutu Group (PJC) is one of Canada's leading drugstore chains with more than 390 franchised outlets in Québec, New Brunswick, and Ontario under the PJC Jean Coutu, PJC Clinique, PJC Santé, and PJC Santé Beauté banners. The company dominates the Québec market but trails rivals Shoppers Drug Mart and Katz Group in overall store count. Its Pro Doc subsidiary (acquired in 2007) manufactures generic drugs and supplies them to wholesalers. In mid-2007 the company sold its troubled US arm, the Brooks Eckerd chain of more than 1,850 drugstores, to Rite Aid in a cash-and-stock deal valued at about $4 billion. The sale made PJC Rite Aid's largest shareholder with about 28% of the firm's shares.

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 eighth on the Fortune 500, and the industry's oldest, largest, most experienced and most sophisticated pharmaceutical distributor. At Rexall, our employees are family and our culture reflects a close-knit community. From coast to coast, store to Rexall Support Centre, we are ALL IN!

Uniprix has vaulted into the #1 spot in the Québec drugstore market (ahead of rival Jean Coutu). The chain operates about 390 drugstores under the Uniprix, Unipharm, Uniclinique, and Clinique Santé banners. (With about 360 pharmacies, Jean Coutu is still Québec's largest chain by revenue.) Drugstores flying the Uniprix banner account for more than half of the company's locations. Many Uniprix locations are superstores averaging 7,500 sq. ft. Unipharm outlets are mid-size neighborhood shops, while Unipharm and Uniclinique are smaller pharmacies adjacent to medical centers and seniors' residences. Founded in 1977, Uniprix is a growing alliance of independent pharmacy operators who together own the company.
Rx marks the spot for Lawton's Drug Stores. The company operates more than 75 pharmacies throughout Atlantic Canada. More than half of the company's stores are in Nova Scotia, but it also has outlets in three other provinces, including about two dozen stores in Newfoundland. Lawton's stores average 9,000 square feet and carry a full line of over-the-counter and prescription drugs, baby products, gifts and greeting cards, health and beauty items, and a limited selection of general merchandise. In addition to stand-alone stores, Lawton's Drug operates outlets inside its parent company's Sobeys supermarkets. Founded in 1886, the drug store chain was acquired by Sobeys, a subsidiary of Empire Company, in 1996.
