Shoppers Drug Mart just made fake monster spray for a kid afraid of the dark

Pharmacists at a Shoppers Drug Mart in Canada are helping a young boy overcome his fear of the dark in the most adorable way possible: by prescribing monster spray.

On Tuesday, a mom in Prince George, B.C. posted on Facebook to thank the pharmacist who took the time to make her a fake monster spray label that she could give her son. 

"Huge thank you to Shoppers Drug Mart on the Hart. My youngest has been having a fear of the dark and all the scary things that might come out. I asked the pharmacy if they could make me a monster spray label and even though they were busy they were happy to do it," Heather Garfield wrote

"I apologize but I didn't get the name of the lady that helped me. I love our Shoppers location and the way they take care of our family, he is so excited for bed tonight...and so is mama lol."

According to the label, to get rid of monsters, one must use the spray around their bedroom before bedtime and repeat if necessary - let's hope it's not. 

Many flooded the comments section of the post where they also showed their love for Shoppers Drug Mart. 

"This is amazing customer service. They put a little guys fears to bed. Wow love this! It's all about the little things in life. This above and beyond customer service. This is a mom who gets it," someone wrote.

"That's almost the coolest thing I've ever seen! Hopefully it's successful," another person added.

This isn't the first time the pharmacy stepped up to help defeat monsters. Back in 2015 in Sooke, B.C., pharmacists made a similar label for a little girl to help her sleep better.

If you're having those bedtime scarries, you know where to go!
