The added bonus of shopping early is that you can take advantage of special holiday promotions and exclusive holiday gifts. With convenience (and Shoppers Optimum Points!) in mind, I like to pick up gifts while buying my household necessities at Shoppers Drug Mart. Shoppers Drug Mart has gifts for everyone on your list and, with more than 1,100 stores in Canada, you're sure to have a location nearby. In fact, I can easily walk to Shoppers Drug Mart from my house. And if I do drive (all the better to load up on packages), Shoppers has lots of free parking. So much better than battling the dreaded mall parking lot!
The first person I always think of when browsing for gifts at Shoppers Drug Mart is my sister. All of the colourful, girly cosmetics gift sets remind me of my lively, fun sister. This set of OH MY GOSH nail lacquers in five festive colours is perfect for her. And GOSH nail lacquer is manufactured without the use of toluene and formaldehyde so it's safe for all members of the family. My daughter would love these too!
Men can be challenging to shop for, but we all know that they are in love with technology. These Sony Wireless Headphones with charging station would put a smile on my husband's face this holiday season. They're great for listening to music or watching TV without disturbing other family members.
From cosmetics to food to seasonal aisles, the stores are easy to navigate so you can get your shopping done quickly. Unless you like to browse and read labels for hours like me. If you like to shop in peace and quiet, remember that your Shoppers Drug Mart store is open late. Take advantage of exciting in-store sales and promotions while shopping in quieter, off-peak hours.
Shoppers Optimum Rewards Program = Free Products!
If you aren't already a member of the Shoppers Optimum Rewards Program, I urge you to sign up. I have received hundreds of dollars worth of free products using the points I earned by shopping on regular days as well as during "20x the points" events. Almost every purchase earns you points. And there are special offers and events for members too.
