People’s Permanently Amends Hours at Victoria Street and Hospital Pharmacy ACW at KEMH.  

People’s Permanently Amends Hours at Flagship Store on Victoria Street and Hospital Pharmacy at the Acute Care
Wing of KEMH.

People’s is announcing new hours for both of its locations, effective Monday, October 3rd, 2022, recognising that customer activity has changed, and there is reduced foot traffic in the city

The new shortened hours for the Victoria Street shop are :
People’s (Victoria Street)
Monday-Saturday 8:00am-7:00pm
Sunday 10:00am-4:00pm

Like many retail stores, People’s has altered its operating hours several times over the past two years to both manage the staffing challenges due to covid and mandated quarantines and to best meet customer needs.

“Retail has changed,” stated Tamara Richardson, Vice President of the People’s Group. “Shopping behaviour is different than it was pre-pandemic. Our economy continues to present serious challenges, especially in the retail sector. It makes more sense for us to focus our
resources, outside of traditional business hours, on our satellite locations.”

Ms. Richardson continued, “In order to better serve our customers, we have decided to permanently change the hours at our flagship store on Victoria Street. Simultaneously, considering the new normal post-pandemic, we have extended the hours at People’s ACW, our
store in the hospital’s Acute Care Wing.

Our hospital location serves a different customer base, some of whom can only obtain their medications through the more clinical, hospital setting. For that reason, the hospital location is
open from 10am to 4pm on all public holidays except Good Friday and Christmas Day.”

The new extended hours for the hospital shop are:
People’s ACW (Acute Care Wing, KEMH)
Monday-Friday 8:00am-8:00pm
Saturday 8:00am-7:00pm
Sunday 10:00am-6:00pm
Public holidays (except Good Friday and Christmas) 10:00am-4:00pm

To expedite prescription refills, customers may submit their refill requests online at,
