No two Shoppers Drug Mart locations are identical. You’ll find that the size, product selection, operating hours, and even the return policy can differ from store to store based on the location and clientele. We found super accommodating return policies in rural Shoppers Drug Mart stores and early opening times at some locations in downtown Toronto.

You Can Now Get Cosmetic Injections
