Is there any way to view a Shopper Drug Mart's electronics selection fully?

All the nearby SDMs near me lock up their laptops for reasons of theft prevention, but I would ideally like to actually look at the laptop box before buying it, which they all refuse and give me the most basic specs possible (hard drive, screen size and RAM, that's it).

Is there some kind of online catalogue of SDM laptops and tablets that I can look at?

Nothing of the sort.

If you explain what you want to do, or bring pen and paper (as opposed to taking a photo), I'm sure a staff member would help you out.

Just tell them you'd like to see the item, planning a future purchase.

Generally speaking, you can figure out the specs by looking at their regular price since their msrp will be the same as BB/Staples/etc so with brand (and specs like ram/hdd/screen size), you generally can google it without even going to the store (assuming its a flyer model). If the store has something different, just ask them to show you the side of the laptop (spec sheet) or read it to you.

Side note, i really wouldnt recommend buying a laptop at SDM considering they dont really have a return policy (most cases its a final sale) and their selection of laptop generally are pretty old.
