    Haha, second rant of the day.. sorry!

    Hudson Bay has been recently bought by Jerry Zucker, US Businessman.
    Tim Hortons has been owned by Wendy\'s corporation since \'95.
    Molson Canadian had merged with Coors brewing company.

    London Drugs.... owned by HY Louie Company and proudly Canadian!

    Here\'s some company history:

    If any of you are into Chinese Canadian history, read Tong Louie\'s Biography which you can pick up at Chapters. It\'s amazing what he did to make London Drugs into what it is today.

    But yeah... you\'re right! It feel like nothing is Canadian owned anymore!

    yeah london drugs is pretty much the only canadian "canadian" store left. places like timmy's and zellers and hbc and shit claim to be canadian yet they're all owned by american companies.
    i work at LD and it's like the best company ever. we pride ourselves on excellent customer service, we go out of our way to satisfy the customer, and even bend our own policies in order to make people happy. we rarely get complaints for bad service (but hey, some people complain no matter WHAT you do for them) so if you're looking for good service and better prices, check out LD. :D

    The last several times I've gone and bought something that was supposed to have a rebate with it, the rebates 'had not yet arrived' and I'm still waiting several weeks later. I'm wondering whether this is a common occurance with Canadian Tire.
