Wellwise by Shoppers Drug Mart has opened a new store in Sudbury, ON. It’s the third of its kind; the other two locations are in Toronto.
Wellwise is a home healthcare store targeted at customers over 65 years old, although many of the items it stocks are also bought by much younger shoppers.
Opening day in Sudbury saw customers trying out new products and taking advantage of in-store health consultations with experts, including a registered nurse. Customers also had a chance to win bonus PC Optimum points, and 200 complimentary goodie bags were handed out.
The store’s staff of eight employees can do consultations to find out about how an injury happened and then match a customer's injury with specialized equipment. All are qualified to use any of the available equipment, except for the sleep apnea test, which only the registered nurse (also an employee) can administer.
