Shoppers Drug Mart to introduce special shopping hour for seniors
The COVID-19 outbreak has led to an abundance of panic-buying, and many people have voiced concerns that Canada's most vulnerable residents—seniors, the immunocompromised and those with disabilities—will be unable to get enough food and medicine.
Fortunately for those who want to ensure they get what they need and not be exposed to crowds, Shoppers Drug Mart is dedicating the first opening hour of shopping to customers who need assistance or consideration, including seniors and people living with disabilities.
Shoppers made the announcement on social media on March 16.
The change comes into effect this week.
Customers are asked to call their local store to confirm its operating hours.
Shoppers says it will also offer the 20 per cent Seniors Day discount on regular priced items for the first hour each day every day, in addition to Seniors Days each Thursday.
