"Shoppers Drug Mart has greatly enjoyed working with Rogers Publishing Limited over the past 10 years and we greatly appreciate the work they've done to develop and evolve Glow Magazine," noted Hankins.

She wouldn't confirm who will print the magazines, although St. Joseph has its own printing facilities in Concord and elsewhere in Ontario.

As for the future of the publications, "We are looking forward to working with St. Joseph Media as we continue to develop the brand," said Hankins. "Glow and Pure magazines will continue to offer readers the high quality reading experience of beauty, health and lifestyle content they have come to know and expect."

Glow's circulation is 360,000 and is published eight times per year, while Pure's circulation is 68,000 and is issued six times per year according to Hankins.
