Welcome to StatsMaps, where every map tells a story!
On September 16, 2013, by final order of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, Loblaw and Shopper’s Drug Mart became one big happy family! The cost: $12.4 billion. Although completion of the arrangements is conditional on compliance with Canada’s Competition Act, it is anticipated that the deal will be completed before the end of the first quarter of 2014.
So what’s the big question on the minds of Canadians? “What about my Optimum points? “The good-news answer is that the Shopper’s Optimum program might be kept or merged with PC Plus or PC Points within the next three years after the sale closes.
Shopping will be even easier! After the sale is closed, Loblaw will stock Shoppers Drug Mart Life brand products and President’s Choice products could appear on Shoppers Drug Mart shelves. Life brand products might also show up at other Loblaw stores like Real Canadian Superstore.
So, it’s all good news for Canadian shoppers. And, remember: hang on to your Optimum, PC and PC Plus points cards!
