Products & Services

SDM offers convenient health services such as pharmacy medication and services, health and beauty products, and household essentials.

In January of 1962, pharmacist Murray Koffler decided to make his vision of a personalized and professional pharmacy organization a reality. One customer at a time, Koffler expanded his pharmacy concept into a chain of drugstores, known today as SDM. Throughout its history, SDM was able to continuously evolve its retail format through business acquisitions and new store openings. Today it is the leading Canadian pharmacy and drugstore retailer with well over 1000 stores in Canada.

Shoppers Drug Mart Corporation, which is still under the ownership of the founding family, operates stores under the Shoppers Drug Mart and Pharmaprix names. In addition to retail stores, SDM also has medical clinic pharmacies and specialty stores such as Shoppers Home Health Care.
