Shopper Drug Mart now an anuthorized iPod reseller

So maybe this isn't that exciting for any of you, but it is for me! My wife works for Shoppers and she gets a 30% employee discount!!! Sweet! I've only seen a few Shuffles and a 20gig in the stores (they sell them in the same spot as the camera gear). Maybe Shoppers will become a full fledged reseller - now that would be sweet! Hey didn't London Drugs start out as a pharmacy??

This can't hurt. The more distribution visibility, the better.

I was in the store at Bloor & Spadina (Walmer Road) yesterday and saw a display of iPods - Shuffle's and full size but no Mini's or Nano's.

What caught my attention first was a display of accessories..... not far away was the iPods. They even have accessories on display at the cash registers.

Hard to believe they will give 30% off an item they don't make 30% on.

My Mother in Law works at Shoppers and the employee discount does have some restrictions. However, the iPods will be discounted to Employees at cost. My understanding is that the percentage is calculated against cost. High margin = high discount. Low Margin equals a smaller discount.
I'll be getting a Nano at Shoppers as soon as they are available with whatever discount applies.

Thats right iPete - it's 30% so long as it doesn't go below cost... But combine the discount with optimum points and you can save another 75 bucks!

Maybe they're trying to become London Drugs east?
