Shoppers Drug Mart to no longer open 24 hours in Winnipeg
Shoppers Drug Mart locations will no longer stay open 24 hours in Winnipeg, due to low demand.
All current 24-hour stores will instead open from 8 a.m. to midnight.
According to a public relations representative for the chain, the decision to reduce hours was made because it’s impractical to have 24-hour stores when there isn’t much after-hours demand.
Two locations, at Southdale Square and the corner of Mountain Avenue and McPhillips Street, have already reduced their hours; the store on Pembina Highway at South Park Drive will make the change on Feb. 25; and locations in Osborne Village and Silver Heights will transition on April 22.
