A new partnership between Metrolinx and Shoppers Drug Mart is seeing essentials available for purchase at select GO stations.

 GO customers are able to purchase everything from allergy relief products to lip balm in Shoppers Drug Mart vending machines located inside a number of GO stations. 

The Shoppers Drug Mart vending machines are located on the second floor of Union Station Bus Terminal, in Burlington GO Station on the west end of the south building, and at Oshawa GO Station.

The vending machines will sell everyday essential items such as over-the-counter drugs like pain relief medication, beauty items, toiletries, and seasonal items such as sunscreen and umbrellas.

How much will it cost you?

Prices for items in the Shoppers Drug Mart vending machines will be the same as regular retail prices found in local Shoppers Drug Mart stores.

For customers, it’s a bit of relief that’s close at hand.
