There’s a grand opening this week, celebrating the launch of a whole new neighbourhood! London Drugs Beach District at Vancouver House at Pacific and Howe is inviting you to their opening on Friday February 7th, marking the first retail store opening in the ‘Beach District’.
London Drugs Beach District
You’ll find the new 12,108sq ft location in this emerging waterfront neighbourhood located at the base of the Granville Street Bridge. This London Drugs was designed to support the immediate needs of the neighbourhood and it features a robust pharmacy department, parcel pick up and a curated assortment of health, beauty, tech, and convenience products.
To mark its entrance into the quickly transforming neighbourhood and reaffirm the company’s commitment to investing in communities, London Drugs will be making a $15,000 donation to Covenant House.
London Drugs, along with Fresh St. Market which opens the same day, will help form the active retail core of the new district located on the north side of False Creek. Building on the success of Granville Island, the Beach District aims to extend this concept across the water, to the other side of the Granville Street Bridge. Home to more than 2,000 people by next year, the area features walkable pedestrian oriented streets and bike lanes with a connection to the Seawall and public spaces that are programmed to be activated year-round by outdoor markets, events, festivals and celebrations.
Enjoy same-day delivery, comprehensive recycling, LD Extras perks, online ordering and pick-up, Whole-You Health Care, along with trends, treasures and coveted brands British Columbians have come to love from London Drugs over the last 75 years, and beyond.
