There are medium-sized Shoppers', deluxe superstores, and seemingly last-minute, underground and compact locations. And given that every neighbourhood in the city has their own go-to location (sometimes two!) there's no doubt that Shoppers Drug Mart holds a special place in all our lives. (For Drake, it's the bottom.)
Here are the best and worst Shoppers Drug Mart locations in Toronto.
What the Atrium lacks in retail cachet, it makes up for in location and available floor space. It's not known exactly which spot in the complex they'll occupy yet, but Retail Insider notes that they've got options. A large space is already open on the basement floor, and there's a new vacancy in the former Guess store on Yonge St. (though a giant Hallowe'en store is set to take over that space in the coming weeks, meaning Muji would have to wait to move in until after trick-or-treat season).
But if you'd really like to feed your donations back into the community, there are a few local thrift stores still operating in Toronto, run by local non-profits that use the cash to fuel programs of their own.
If you'd like to make sure that that special item gets into the hands of someone who can really use it, there are organizations that collect professional clothing (think job interview suits) for folks trying to re-enter the workforce, and shelters collecting warm clothing to help those living on the street. You can even donate your wedding gown, with the money from the resale going to benefit charity.
Here's a selection of some of the best places to donate clothing in Toronto - where they are, what they'll take, and where your donation is going.
