The 1980s saw huge growth at Shoppers Drug Mart, with annual sales reaching $1.2 billion by 1982.
In 1984 Shoppers debuted their slogan "Everything you want in a drugstore," which meant to encompass five company pillars: service, savings, selection, convenience, and trust. They hired Golden Girl Bea Arthur to front a popular series of ads.
This commercial from 1988 promotes a 500 Store Celebration Sale. The retailer now has over 1,200 locations.
Arthur continued to star in the ads well into the 1990s.
