On Sunday afternoon, London Drugs, a Canadian retail pharmacy chain, took to social media to alert customers that all their Western Canada stores will be closed until further notice.

According to the statements, posted both on X (formerly known as Twitter) and Facebook, the retailer experienced an operational issue that has led to stores closing.

"Pharmacists are standing by to support any customers with urgent pharmacy needs. We advise customers to phone their local store's pharmacy to make arrangements," the statement read.

London Drugs operates almost 80 stores across Alberta, including a store in Airdrie; British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
