Most Uniprix products are branded as Option+.

The Uniprix name is also used for a Montreal tennis stadium (formerly DuMaurier Stadium) which the chain acquired the naming rights for.

Uniprix also was the name of a chain of popular stores in France, launched by the Nouvelles Galeries in 1928. It later was acquired by its competitor, Monoprix.

On April 12, 2017, it was announced that the Montreal-based McKesson Canada, a subsidiary of U.S.-based McKesson, that already owns 275 Proxim pharmacies, reached a deal to acquire Groupe Uniprix’s 330 pharmacies. [1]

McKesson Canada became the biggest pharmacy group in Quebec by having more outlets than Groupe Jean Coutu, which has 382.
