London Drugs is a 100% Canadian owned store that focuses primarily on Customer satisfaction. There are currently 75 stores in convenient locations across British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
If you are a family with children, and buy a lot of baby products, pharmaceutical goods, electronics and other household items, then London Drugs could be a good place for you to shop and redeem coupons on many of the products that you regularly buy.
London Drugs is the only store in Canada that allows coupon stacking, which means that more than one coupon may be redeemed against a product on the condition that each coupon has a different UPC code, and comes from a different media source.
