In our quest to make it easier for you to purchase and activate our SIM cards, we are happy to announce that we’ve now launched at The Mobile Shop! There are nearly 200 The Mobile Shop locations across Canada, located in places like Loblaws and Real Canadian Superstore. Find the store closest to you by clicking here. As with our other retail partners, you will continue to have the option to activate at home or in-store, based on what you prefer.
If you happen to be near The Mobile Shop after we launch, we’d love to hear your feedback on how things are going.

This is great! Too bad all three local retail sites (Walmart, WOW, and now The Mobile Shop) are all located in the farthest reaches of my community, from where I live.
Saying this though, I will be happy to support this location before I go to Walmart.
@Brooke_C, this is GREAT news as I think this will be a wider distribution and really help PM. Now if it is a successful launch and they are a good retailer how about considering laying some rules or enforcing stuff with Walmart or cut them as a retailer. There have been some good stories out of Walmart but way more negative
awesome news I agree with @ShawnC13 time to lose walmart. now if i can only win the guacamole contest and use the gift card at the mobile shop 🙂
PS i loved the foreshadowing of the announcement via the contest 🙂
Anyone know if you can buy Public Mobile SIM cards with PC points, and if I am able to take advantage of the tax free sales? I already know I cannot do that with airtime.
@bridonca i believe you should be able to. I remember being told i could buy a phone with points so a sim should be the same.
With the merger of PC Points and the Shoppers DrugMart Optimum Rewards, I think it will be allowed, as there USED to be a minimum $20 (20,000 PC Points) redemption, which is now $10 (10,000 PC Optimum points)
