Rebekah, meet the Health Clinic by Shoppers

Rebekah Menezes knew in high school that she wanted to be a nurse. Her mom, a nurse for 35 years, would always come home telling stories about her day and talking about how she loved the job. For the last five years, since Rebekah graduated as a Registered Practical Nurse (RPN), she’s worked at Kendalwood Clinic in Whitby, Ont.

Katie is a pharmacist in training

You could say that Katie Trees fell into the pharmacy profession. When she was in high school, a pharmacist from her local Shoppers Drug Mart® store in Port Alberni, British Columbia, approached her school’s career counsellor to ask if there were any science students who might want to work as a pharmacy assistant. They suggested Katie, now 30, might be a good fit. “I knew I wanted a career in healthcare but I had no idea what pharmacy was or what I’d be doing.”

Rayelyn Izzo, a Beauty Specialist at a Shoppers Drug Mart® store in Calgary, AB has been waiting for the Beauty NOWTM platform for years. “The old system was archaic,” she says. “We’d have to wait and wait and we really need to be able to communicate with our clients on a faster technology platform. It’s beauty at our fingertips.”
