Merchandising and Category Management

Shoppers Drug Mart leads the Canadian marketplace offering unique store formats, powerful product assortments, and global supplier partnerships spanning multiple categories including prestige cosmetics, health and beauty products, food, electronics, jewelry, seasonal goods, confection, Over The Counter, and more!

We are a Canadian success story of 50 years, created by recognizing needs, innovating products and services and focusing on what's important to our customers.

And Category Management is at the heart of all we do.

With innovative house brands, unique marketing opportunities, powerful supplier relationships, and exclusive brands, the Shoppers Drug Mart Category Management team goes beyond the standard offering and creates true retail innovations.

A strategic part of our organization, Category Management roles at Shoppers offer the chance to really learn and build your business. You will apply entrepreneurial, consulting, management and analytical skills on a daily basis, while executing and delivering real outcomes that drive the bottom line.

We are execution and results focused, and reward our people with a chance to learn, try new things, take more responsibility and get things done.

Why now?

We are currently investing in our teams at Central office, to provide the best support to our Stores and their teams.

For the buyers and merchants on our Category Manager team, that is taking the form of new initiatives to improve workflow, and promotions optimization, while also developing Category Strategy, a planned Centre of Excellence to help deliver a test environment for categories, while providing measurement and analysis support to help you deliver the best outcomes for your category.

Joining our Category Management team now means you are able to help set the tone, and add your voice to the new initiatives, plans and workflows being built.

And on top of that, every year, Shoppers Drug Mart employees at Central office, and in the stores of our Associate Owners, contribute more time, money and effort to great charitable causes across Canada.

We offer unique work, and the benefits you would expect from a large corporation, all with a smaller company feel, as well as:

  • A high energy and varied workplace that strives for and rewards excellence
  • Competitive pay structures, rewarding strong and consistent performance
