Rexall Pharmacy coming soon to Sylvan Lake

Work on an 11,000-square-foot Rexall Pharmacy store in Sylvan Lake is expected to begin shortly.

Work on an 11,000-square-foot Rexall Pharmacy store in Sylvan Lake is expected to begin shortly.

Planned for the southeast corner of 47th Avenue and 50th Street, the pharmacy is expected to open in the late fall or early winter of next year, said a Rexall spokesperson.

The store will replace the existing Sylvan Lake Rexall at 5031 50 St. That outlet is only 3,200 square feet and carries a limited range of products.

The new Rexall store will offer a wide assortment of over-the-counter goods, such as health and beauty products, vitamins, convenience groceries and household items, said the spokesperson.

Several buildings have been removed to make way for the pharmacy, including a century-old house that owner Brian Flanagan said once belonged to the Palmer family — who operated a creamery.
