Who We AreWhat began as Starkman's Chemists on Bloor Street in 1929 has evolved into the recognized provider of quality medical supplies. Now located on Bathurst Street at Davenport Road, Starkmans Health Care Depot’s reputation as the leader in the field is due to responding to the needs of their customers by offering a variety of products to suit each customer’s taste and budget.
Our products are extensive and cover a wide range including supports, bath aids, compression stockings, pillows, ostomy and wound care, and we are pleased to have increased their visibility in other age groups by opening a new maternity and child-care department. Over the years, we have been a major supplier of therapy and healing products and have added a new exercise department that is popular among physical and occupational therapists as well as exercise enthusiasts. We also have many products for rent including hospital beds, wheelchairs, daylights and tens machines.
Along with our excellent store salespeople, the office has staff on the order desk to take your order over the phone. We offer free delivery on orders over $25 to addresses in Toronto, and orders outside those borders are shipped via courier. And if we don’t stock a product you are looking for, please ask! We are happy to order something in for you!
Starkmans is easily accessible. We purchased the adjacent lot (formerly a gas station) and converted it into a free parking lot for customers. We have wheelchair parking and are wheelchair accessible. The store is easily accessible using public transportation by taking the Bathurst 7 bus north or south which stops at Davenport. While you are in the store shopping, there are chairs throughout offering comfortable seating. We also have free coffee for all customers!
Expanding your business is exciting. But taking it to the next level can be daunting. Starkmans has successfully transitioned to an online presence with our website www.starkmans.com (which was recently updated with a relaunch) and attracts many customers, from out of town and locally.
