TORONTO, Nov. 22, 2012 /CNW/ - Well.ca - Canada's largest health, beauty

mobile transactions have quadrupled in each of the last two years,
making this the perfect time to introduce our iPhone and iPad app."
The mobile app is packed full of innovative features to create an online
shopping experience like nothing consumers have ever seen before.

cart and save you a trip to the store."

create custom shopping lists for each area of their house and subscribe
