CORNWALL -Hundreds of people waited upwards of an hour in line Wednesday to find out more info about the new Shoppers Drug Mart distribution centre set to open later this year.

Much as how SCM runs Wal-Mart's local distribution centre, the Shoppers Drug Mart distribution centre will be run by Matrix Logistics Services.

The company had previously announced it was looking to fill more than 130 jobs at the Optimum Drive location in Cornwall's business park, but it won't begin the hiring process until months down the road.

Another popular choice for people at the job fair was Service Canada, which is looking to hire some 177 workers for its local call centre.

The big news for Service Canada at the job fair was that it had begun posting English positions. Bilingual positions have been available since last September.
