London Drugs

LONDON DRUGS is a drugstore chain established in 1945 when Sam Bass (1915–90), a Winnipeg-born pharmacist, bought a store at the corner of Main and Union streets in VANCOUVER and created the first modern drugstore in BC. Bass opened more stores before selling to the American company Daylin Corp in 1968. Daylin opened the chain's first Alberta store in 1975, then sold to the Vancouver-based H.Y. Louie Group in 1976. By 2015 the chain operated 78 stores, 51 of them in BC. See also LOUIE, Tong.
