Things have just gotten a lot more beautiful at Toronto's Yonge-Dundas Square with a brand new Shoppers Drug Mart!

Shoppers Drug Mart has officially opened its doors at Toronto’s Yonge-Dundas Square in a unique re-imagining of the space once occupied by the Hard Rock Cafe and Friar’s Tavern, offering consumers a refreshed design and a convenient and interactive retail experience while paying homage to its predecessor’s iconic history and musical roots.

To honour the musical history, the space includes artifacts from the  venues as well as memorabilia from some of Toronto’s music legends, in addition to an interactive timeline that allows shoppers to see historical highlights come to life through photos and video. 
The whole first floor houses the beautyBOUTIQUE featuring a Quo digital wall that provides consumers with beauty information tailored to their selections and preferences...
along with another wall featuring a rotating selection of unique indie beauty brands for customers to explore as well as access to the expertise of Shoppers Drug Mart Beauty Experts and services such as personalized skin care consultations, make-up applications and lots of beauty events on the outside patio!
 Available are all the brands you expect to be able to find at Shoppers like Benefit and Smashbox...
 and some you usually have to make a trek to the department store for like YSL and Chanel!
And some that you've been buying elsewhere but will now be able to pick up here and collect your points too - I was excited to see a Glamglow section...
And Philosophy!
 Lots of options for the boy too!
And more fragrance then you can shake a stick at (although I don't know why you would want to shake a stick at fragrance, that's just weird)!

Along with lots and lots of beauty - the store offers enhanced convenience food offering including an assortment of fresh and healthy food items that can be purchased on the g, fresh produce, PC Kabobs, pork chops, ground beef, burgers, chicken breast, sausages, and salmon, grocery items such as cereals, soups condiments, ice cream and various frozen foods, ready-to-eat food such as sandwiches, wraps, sushi, as well as fresh pastas, sauces, quiche and meat pies.

And of course a pharmacy - in addition to the full-service pharmacy, the store’s offering will include digital pharmacy, where patients can manage their prescriptions online and compliance pack services so patients can have their medications organized by date and dosage time in blister packaging.
Strangely, even with all the amazing beauty options I was most compelled by the self-serve shipping station in the post office - with unique self-serve technology that allows you to print shipping labels or stamps, drop off parcels in a secure drop box and pay by debit or credit before receiving a receipt with the tracking number - no more waiting in line!

There's lots to love at the new location - see you there!
