Should Canadian consumers need more reasons to shop deep discounts at home this Black Friday, we've compiled 10 more compelling reasons:

  • London Drugs will host a "micro site" showcasing the Black Friday deals which will be easily found on www.londondrugs.com.
  • We'll match any Canadian competitor's advertised price on identical products we sell. Store staff are equipped with iPads for immediate price comparison while shopping in our stores.
  • Throughout the year consumer electronics at Canadian retailers is constantly competing with, and often exceeding, the expectations of Canadian customers relative to pricing in the U.S. Our vendor partners in Canada are providing way more deals for the Black Friday time frame than they ever have before.
  • Many high tech products and items like kitchen appliances purchased in the U.S. are only serviceable in the U.S., something customers need to be aware of in case a problem occurs. When shopping at London Drugs, you have warranty and service at your fingertips. NO HASSLE.
  • Consider the Buy Local angle. It doesn't just apply to items made in your community; it also means supporting those who work in your community, whether they are customer service representatives, online sales support or your local cashier.
  • Consider the current exchange rate! Definitely factor the exchange rate, transportation costs and travel time for cross-border shopping.
  • Let's not forget the environment - sitting in traffic, burning fossil fuels when the majority of the same products can be found here at home and at comparable U.S. Black Friday prices!
  • Remember, with all products purchased at London Drugs, all of the packaging can be recycled, instead of going to landfills! London Drugs can recycle just about everything it sells, including all of the packaging and nasty Styrofoam.
  • And of course, easy Online ordering at www.LondonDrugs.com shipping anywhere in Canada, with same day shipping in Metro Vancouver and a two hour turnaround for pick up at all 78 London Drugs stores.

*Some exceptions apply to same day shipping such as weight restrictions and special orders. See online for details.
