Canada's Rexall celebrates newest Edmonton store


EDMONTON, Alberta — Canadian pharmacy retailer Rexall celebrated on Friday the opening of its newest drug store at Northgate Centre.

Attending the grand opening celebration was Paul Chidley, divisional VP of Rexall, Tony Caterina, councillor for the City of Edmonton, and Janice Sarich, MLA for Edmonton-Decore, as well as employees and members of the community. This marks the 24th Rexall location in the city of Edmonton.

The range of services available at the new location include a full service pharmacy, nutrition consultation, vitamin therapy, free prescription delivery, a refrigerated grocery section, as well as a cosmetic department.

At 11,200 square feet the store offers a range of healthy products including naturopathic and homeopathic selections, as well as Rexall’s private brand Be.better. Be.better. has 170 items that were selected and designed to help Canadians live, feel and be better. The line includes healthier snack options, environmentally-friendly cleaning products, gluten-free vitamins, vegetarian probiotics and salon-quality hair and skin care products.

Also in attendance were organizers from Kids Kottage, a crisis nursery center that provides a safe, nurturing home away from home for infants and children up to 11 years of age, free of charge, during a time of family crisis. Kids Kottage received a $10,000 donation from the Rexall Foundation, which will be used to fund equipment and programming.
