The store first opened in November of 1984 and has since welcomed locals and tourists to the uniquely designed location, which is memorable partly because of the precarious stairway that lead to the Earls Restaurant above.
“London Drugs is thrilled to be able to celebrate its newly renovated London Drugs with an in-person event on one of the most iconic streets in Vancouver, Robson Street,” said Sean Kim, London Drugs store manager. “The West End and Robson Street community has been incredible to work with throughout this time as we have continued to work with all health and safety protocols in place. Having serviced this community for decades, customers can continue to expect the same services from London Drugs in a refreshed and bright environment. Being a local, Canadian company means we are committed to the communities we serve and are pleased to give a donation to Vancouver’s A Loving Spoonful.”
On July 16th at 7:45 a.m., members of the London Drugs executive team were joined by Vancouver City Councillor Lisa Dominato to mark the completion of renovations at one of Vancouver’s long-standing retailers with speeches and a formal ribbon cutting. To commemorate this event and its history in the West End, London Drugs will donate $5,000 to A Loving Spoonful, another Vancouver fixture and important charity that has been servicing residents of Vancouver since 1989.
London Drugs was founded in 1945 in B.C. and has grown to 82 physical stores in 35 major markets in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
