PharmaChoice Canada: more than just a drugstore
May 10, 2020
Advice for Life
PharmaChoice was founded in 1999 by PharmaChoice East CEO Calvin LeRoux and a group of key owners. Today, PharmaChoice has 776 store locations across Canada.
PharmaChoice owners tailor their locations to serve the unique needs of their communities. Unlike some franchises, PharmaChoice owners have the freedom, flexibility, and tools they need to provide accessible healthcare to Canadians. Their tool kits include advice on volume buying, marketing, technology, and shared best practices. These help pharmacy owners build their businesses and take on their competitors.
Pharmacies are now so much more than just a place to pick up your prescription and a new paperback. Pharmacists are more than just dispensers. Today’s pharmacists have become the frontline for patients. Given the shortage of physicians, extremely long wait times for appointments, and the country’s aging population, Canada’s pharmacists are the go-to for flu shots, shingles shots, prescription advice, and more.
What’s in the future?
With 400 to 500 unaffiliated pharmacies, PharmaChoice sees many opportunities for growth, particularly in Ontario and Western Canada.
