Since the first Jean Coutu Pharmacy opened in 1969, The Jean Coutu Group has constantly innovated, adapted itself and moved forward to meet the needs and expectations of consumers. After all, our business is all about people. Our goal is to offer customers all the advantages of a large drugstore chain while still retaining the personalised service offered by a local pharmacist.We have constantly strived to instil the espoused values of service, excellence and responsibility across our network. These core values have served The Jean Coutu Group well over the past 42 years.
The year 2007 marked a key point in our Company’s history, with the merger of our US subsidiary, The Jean Coutu Group (PJC) USA, into Rite Aid Corporation. This transaction represents a unique strategic opportunity to optimize our United States presence by transforming our investment in Brooks Eckerd pharmacies into the leading ownership position in Rite Aid, the third largest drugstore chain in the North America.We are proud of what we have accomplished and we are very grateful to our employees and our franchisees for translating our corporate values into action. Together, we have set the stage for future growth over the coming years.
