London Drugs

From cough syrup to curling irons. London Drugs was founded in 1945 as a small drugstore in Vancouver, BC. It was sold to an American company but then, in 1976 the business was acquired by the H.Y. Louie Group under the direction of President Tong Louie. This move marked the expansion of London Drugs throughout Western Canada, a move that would soon make the drugstore a Canadian institution.
