Cumberland Drugs was a pharmacy chain that operated stores in Quebec (with majority of them in the Montreal area) and Eastern Ontario. Cumberland Drugs was sold in 1997 upon the retirement of Morrie Neiss (none of his heirs were interested in carrying on the family business), selling most stores to Jean Coutu, Uniprix and Essaim/Obonsoins (now Proxim). Cumberland Drugs' headquarters in Dorval were on Dorval Ave. The flagship store in Dorval, Quebec, Canada on Herron Blvd. is now a Jean Coutu store.
