Shoppers Drug Mart - Ontario, Mississauga - seniors 20% discount discrimination

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 1 votes
My mother is suffering from Parkinson Disease. Her ability to walk and move is restricted to her disease and her medications. As her disease prevents her from walking far or doing her own shopping, I usually do it for her. This also means picking up medicines and medical products that are over-the-counter, including continence products. There are many times when these products are too expensive to buy full price. Therefore, when seniors 20% discount days are offered, we usually try to stock up essential expensive products to help offset the cost of living. This was fine when a year ago, when my...

Shoppers Drug Mart - Ontario, Burlington - Cutting of employee hours out of will.

Posted: 2012-10-16 by    shoppers employee
Complaint Rating:  100 % with 4 votes
Hello,
I'm an employee of Shoppers Drug Mart and my complaint is about a Front Store Manager that cut hours out of spite because of a time off request. This Front store manager complains she is over worked but goes on vacation all the time when and spends the good portion of the worked day sitting in her office and complains she is over worked.
To cut a full time employees hours is wrong and is a violation but yet there will be nothing done about it because that is the way Shoppers Drug Mart is.
For close to ten years I have been with the company and hated every minute...

Shoppers Drug Mart - Harassed at Shoppers Drug Mart

I was approached and cornered by both the Store owner and Manager and told that I was frequenting the Plains Road location in Burlington too much. I was told that my visits were “looking suspicious” to their security cameras. I left publicly embarrassed and humiliated.

Apparently a recovering cancer patient on a disability pension is not spending enough money for the number of times I visit my “Family Drug Store”. I have NEVER been in trouble with the law and do not have a criminal record of any kind. I resent the treatment very much. As a former child care...

Shoppers Drug Mart - Alberta, Red Deer - Unprofessional

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 1 votes
Had issues obtaining points from a promotion. Young man whom happened to be in charge that day was very rude to me, raised his voice, yelled at me, would not let me even explain the situation, he clearly has anger management issues.
It ended up that I let him continue yelling as I quietly & calmly left all items in my cart - and walked out of the store.
This man should be terminated for his behaviour, as negative behaviour often brings consequences. He obviously does not like to work around customers, nor did he demonstrate any ability to resolve the issue, and he must really dislike...

Shoppers Drug Mart - Insulting promotion

Shoppers Drugs Mart is one big FAIL in my opinion. In early November, I received a "gift" package from them with an image of an older women on the front. The gift was selected "just for you" or similar wording. I opened it to find two incontinence pads. I don't use these and, even if I did, would I want something like this is the mail, or would I buy it? The real complaint is with their appalling management/marketing team who, despite THREE letters, one accompanying the returned product, has done NOTHING in terms of communication. No apology. Nothing. When I called, I got...

Shoppers Drug Mart - Ontario, Toronto - Unethical practice, very poor customer service

I am a regular at Shoppers and spend $100-$150 per week on an average. I had a horrible experience with the store manager Mr. Maher and other store managers from Yonge & King store (toronto).
The issue is, on August 14, I picked up 2 different varieties of Listerine mouthwash to the cashier and asked the lady to check the prices. After she did so by scanning both the products, I chose the variety with lower price ($8.99) for purchase and asked her to set aside the costlier variety. She did set aside the costlier bottle ($10.99) but she did not remove the product from my bill.

Shoppers Drug Mart - Ridiculous Experience

I purchased some eye makeup remover from Shoppers Drug Mart. It was their own cosmetics brand (Quo) and has the same return policy as the Life brand (satisfaction guaranteed!). It did not work very well and it stung my eyes. I sent an email to the company and told them I would be returning the product. I never did hear back from anyone.

I went to Shoppers to return the makeup remover. The cashier seemed new and was not familiar with the return policy (something I'd assume is part of basic training). She commented that it was used (um, yes, that's how I know it stings my...

I would like to say my experience with the 728 Yonge St Shoppers Drug Mart location and Scorpion Investigation Agency has been truly disappointing. As an advertising student, I was dissapointed that they had no samples
out to see what the product was like, which you usually had. So I decided to open up the container to test the thickness of the wax, I touched it lightly with the intention of buying debating whether I should get the L'Oreal Studio
Mineral FX or the Indestructables. But I was unsure since I did not want to fully take out a huge chunk and yes I am aware that I shouldn't...

The manager of Shoppers Drug Mart, Store #705, Brampton was extremely rude to me while I was trying to resolve a dispute that involved their Optima card. I had asked to speak to him, since I was not getting any resolution from either the cashier or her supervisor. The manager, Larry Scott, approached me in an extremely confrontational and rude way, in fact he walked up to me yelling. He used foul language and made absolutely no attempt to listen to my complaint. I was absolutely appalled by his rude and unprofessional manner, but after reading similar stories on this website, I realize that this...

I am sending this e-mail in the hope of getting the attention of shareholders that manage customer relations for Shoppers Drug Mart. My friends and I live in the northeast section of Edmonton Alberta. We usually deal with the store in that end located on 118 Avenue and 34 street.

We have been "ripped off" so many times from this store. Items that are marked down or advertised at a discounted price are "charged at the normal price" frequently. We try to check our receipts while we are in the store but the counters are usually very busy and the clerk and customers...

I have purchased expensive cosmetics from shoppers. Offered no samples, gifts when there were available. An event was coming up, Alexis, the cosmetics "manager" phoned me because she knew of my purchases, told me about Lancome event where I was to receive a gift, which I had been waiting for. She had my phone number, was supposed to phone me to let me know the date and time of event. She was going to put my name on a Lancome gift, to be kept aside for me. She did not phone me -- I call after the fact, she gets defensive, starts making excuses PLUS MY GIFT was GIVEN TO ANOTHER PERSON--THIS...

On May 5th 2011 at 5.00 pm I visited the shoppers at BCE place - underground path next to longos. Trying out some lip stick, the next thing I know on of the staffers calls another attendant whispers something in his ear, and as I want around the store they have someone following me. I have never felt so humiliated before, did not want to create a scene as I work at the BCE place in a corporate office. maybe because I was brown skinned I have no idea - but I have often experience very rude staff and attendants at all the shoppers, makes me wonder if the corporate does not have some mandatory training...
