Where is London Drugs?

While in Canada, London Drugs was one of our favourite stores.  Nice store to simply browse or shop with a list in mind.  They carried a good variety of products from toilet paper, cosmetics, electronics, computers to the latest DVDs/Blu-Rays – something for everyone.  Plus good customer service too.

When we moved here, I was in search of equivalent big box stores in California to ones back in Canada.  Below are some of the “equivalent” stores that I’ve explored so far. There is still much shopping to do, and more will be added with time 😉

[ Did you know that your Canadian Costco membership is valid at the US Costco locations too?  Great news since there wasn’t any change in our Costco membership when we moved. ]
