London Drugs reserves shopping time for frontline workers in battle against COVID-19

The dedicated shopping hour is for first responders, including firefighters, police officers, ambulance paramedics, active military personnel, and frontline health-care workers, including hospital staff, care home staff, medical centre employees and pharmacists

London Drugs has reserved the last hour of its shopping day for all health-care workers and first responders working during the COVID-19 pandemic — Sundays from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Mondays through Saturdays from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m.

“We are offering frontline workers a dedicated time to get their shopping done as easy and as stress-free as possible. They often work long shifts and many stores are closed by the time they are off their day shifts,” London Drugs president and CEO Clint Mahlman said. “We know it is a stressful time for those working on the frontline of this health crisis and it is imperative we do everything we can to help these individuals stay healthy and take care of them as best we can.”
