SLIDESHOW: Inside London Drugs’ first store with an optical clinic
VANCOUVER, British Columbia — London Drugs last week introduced for the first time a new full-service optical clinic into one of its locations in Vancouver’s Park Royal Shopping Centre. Drug Store News obtained some of the first pictures from the grand opening.
“Particularly in health care, our role in the health outcomes of our customers and patients continues to expand and evolve,” London Drugs EVP and COO Clint Mahlman said when the optical clinic opened. “Launching our first-ever optical clinic within London Drugs is another way we can immediately provide an important health care service.”
In addition to the new optical clinic in London Drugs, the newly renovated Park Royal London Drugs includes an educational Learning Lab, which was designed to create an engaging, open learning environment.
The Learning Lab will feature London Drugs experts who will offer workshops on topics ranging from health and wellness to technology, gadgets and sustainability. The Learning Lab will also be available for use by West Vancouver community groups, local educators and experts.

WILTON, Conn. — Henkel’s All brand on Monday announced the latest addition to the laundry detergent’s line and a new partnership with author and yoga instructor Hilaria Baldwin. The company is launching All Fresh Clean Essentials, a sulfate-free detergent, with Baldwin supporting the launch.
