Founded in 1962 by Toronto pharmacist Murray Koffler, the Company has grown to a network of more than 1,307 Shoppers Drug Mart/Pharmaprix stores across Canada. These conveniently located stores are owned and operated by the Company’s licensed Associate-owners, who have helped build a brand that is synonymous with exceptional service, value, and trust.
Shoppers Drug Mart has successfully leveraged its leadership position in the pharmacy market, and its convenient store locations capture a significant share of the over-the-counter medications market, health and beauty aids, cosmetics and fragrances, seasonal, and everyday household essential products.
HoneyWater® recently made a splash at their Shoppers Drug Mart launch, starting with the 550 Eglinton Ave W location in the heart of downtown Toronto. HoneyWater® is a leader in the naturally sweetened beverage market, and its vision aligns perfectly with Shoppers Drug Mart brand – offering consumers healthier alternatives that have a positive impact on their health and lifestyle. Beyond this launch, HoneyWater® will be moving into several key shoppers drug mart locations later this year.
HoneyWater® was built to be more than just a refreshing and healthy beverage, its a stepping-stone for an agricultural movement to raise awareness for and combat one of the most serious crisis affecting our generation, colony collapse disorder (CCD). To make the most impact on our communities, HoneyWater® has pioneered the ‘Buy a bottle, save a bee’ program, where a portion of proceeds from each bottle go directly towards our partnering initiatives, which include honey farmers, national industry associations, and educational institutions. By partnering up with HoneyWater®, Shoppers Drug Mart helps to support over 300 beekeepers on the front lines of the fight to save the bees and ensure the sustainability of our agriculture, nationwide.
