|About The Medicine Shoppe
Medicine Shoppe Canada Inc. (“MSC”) is a Master Licensee of Medicine Shoppe International,
Inc. (“MSI”) of St. Louis, MO. Founded by pharmacist Michael Busch, MSI was established in
1970 and opened its first franchised pharmacy in 1971. MSI now has franchised and corporate units operating
in countries worldwide.
From the beginning, The Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy was unique. We have always been a patient-focused (rather
than product-focused) professional pharmacy, mainly concentrating on healthcare rather than conventional
drug store merchandise such as cigarettes, photofinishing, and cosmetics.
Medicine Shoppe Pharmacies are designed to enhance the customer experience. Our
dispensaries are at eye level, not on a raised platform like most drug stores. Our pharmacies offer soft
lighting, a comfortable place to sit, and a private counseling area that also serves a dual purpose as
a screening area. All Medicine Shoppe Pharmacies have a very distinctive Wellness Centre that is the
cornerstone fixture of each store.
As the first pharmacy organization to offer healthcare screenings on a regular (and national) basis,
The Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy prides itself on maintaining its leadership within our industry in the area
of patient care.
