As you know, over the past 12 months we’ve put a ton of effort into growing Public Mobile. Thanks to your continued support, we are growing each and every day and, as a team, we are excited for what’s to come over the next year.
Along these lines of growth, we are excited to announce that we are making it easier for you to purchase and activate our SIM cards by making them available at London Drugs stores. As with our other retail partners, you will continue to have the option to activate at home or activate in-store, based on what you prefer. London Drugs stores are predominantly located in Alberta and British Columbia, meaning that this launch will allow us to make our brand more accessible to our Western customers. For our friends out West, we hope you enjoy the added convenience!
If you happen to be near a London Drugs store after we launch, we’d love to hear your feedback on how things are going.

Hopefully these reps doing the in store activation will be properly trained so there aren't so many problems.
Wow, that's big news for the West.
They have something like 70-80 stores out west, if I recall correctly.
@Brooke_C Clarification needed on activations. Are all the retail partners able/willing to activate SIMs? WOW Mobile and K Mobile as well as Walmart/London Drugs.
Based on my limited experience adding London Drugs is definitely a coup.
This is great news. Walmart does a horrible job IMO of selling and promoting public mobile. The staff at London drugs are usually great to work with and very knowledgable. Great job public mobile. Hopefully you will keep thos partnership for more than the month.
Will definitely keep London Drugs in mind! I would definitely recommend LD and go there myself (much more convenient over alternatives). I've cautioned colleagues about using Walmart (with inconsistent and unpredictable results), and I don't much care for the malls, where WOW! Boutique kiosks have always been helpful.
Next logical step would be to co-locate at TELUS stores, where Koodo materials are already available at most locations.
I admit, the changes are coming along, BUT still, NOT all places act uniformly
Plus, at WOW, EVEN If you get Sim, they won't sell ANY of their handsets, as it's ONLY for Postpaid stuff
Telus/Koodo Co-hab maybe a logical option as well
How about a free SIM card deal at London Drugs, similar to the recent Walmart promotion, to kick things off with a bang?
