Rexall Pharmacy Group Limited
Year Founded: 1904
With a heritage dating back over a century, Rexall is a leading drugstore operator with a dynamic history of innovation and growth, dedicated to caring for Canadians’ health... one person at a time.
Our history of helping Canadians has endured since the turn of the last century, through successive evolutions of Rexall and Rexall Pharma Plus from apothecary-type drugstores to the modern community pharmacies they are today. Rexall in Canada was established in 1904 in the early days of the United Drug Company and quickly established itself as an innovator in retail pharmacy. At the same time, Tamblyn Drugs was establishing itself in Toronto, Ontario, and would eventually become Pharma Plus.
A lot may have changed over the years, but our commitment to helping Canadian families and communities be healthier has never been stronger; it continues to guide us as we look to the future and increase access to convenient, quality healthcare and products that Canadians can feel good about.
Operating over 400 pharmacies across Canada, Rexall’s 8,500 employees are dedicated to providing exceptional patient care and customer service in 180 communities across Canada.
Whether it’s providing flu shots at any time* or other services within the expanding scopes of pharmacy care, offering exclusive daily living products that can help put you on a healthy path, transforming our store environments, or making sure your medications are working safely for you, Rexall is focused on continuing to evolve to meet the changing needs of our patients and customers.
Rexall also operates Rexall Direct, our online prescription delivery service direct to your door. Rexall is part of the Rexall Pharmacy Group Ltd. and a proud member of the global McKesson Corporation family.
