This year marks a momentous year for Pharmasave as it celebrates opening its 150th store in British Columbia, in Canada’s 150th year. “Since 1981, our organization has grown into one of the most trusted community drug store banners in Canada,” says Greg Shepherd, CEO of Pharmasave Pacific. Building a trusted brand that emphasizes strong patient relationships is at the heart of Pharmasave’s success.
There are now over 600 Pharmasave stores across 9 provinces, and it all started here in BC. “We make every effort to maintain a strong presence in as many communities across BC, from Vancouver Island east to the Kootenays, and from Vancouver to some of the most remote communities in Northern BC,” adds Shepherd. “Pharmasave stores and their communities are celebrating both 150 milestones with our Celebrate Canada and Win contest (details at pharmasavesweepstakes.com).”
Pharmasave prides itself in providing exceptional service, value and quality health and wellness choices to customers and communities across the country. The company’s success is no accident. Committed to meeting and exceeding customers’ expectations, Pharmasave has carefully created a community tailored pharmacy experience in each store that has kept patients and customers coming back for more than 35 years.
Pharmasave stores are independently owned and operated, allowing each store to embrace the unique opportunities in their markets and customize products and services to best meet the needs of their community. Pharmasave Owners really get involved in their communities; whether it’s by hosting health and wellness clinics, contributing to local fundraisers, or simply providing meaningful advice, they are committed to improving the health of the communities they serve.
On track to reach 160 stores in BC this year, Pharmasave’s growth is a testament of how its independent owner operator format, combined with high quality pharmacy services and programs, is ideally positioned to meet the needs of its customers.
Pharmasave is successful because of its dedicated, community-focused store owners who foster exceptional customer care, earning the ongoing support of their valued customers. “That’s why we wanted to use this 150 store milestone as an opportunity to thank everyone, in every BC community, for helping us grow, and for making Pharmasave Canada’s Community Pharmacy,” says Shepherd.
With more than 600 stores across the country, Pharmasave is one of Canada’s leading independent community pharmacies. Since being founded in 1981, Pharmasave has focused on building a national platform of community-based retail outlets designed to provide exceptional patient-centred healthcare, medication advice, drug store products and customer service. Pharmasave continues to differentiate itself through leading-edge digital solutions. Patients can access everyday tools to manage their health in ways that are simple to set up and easy to maintain with eCare@Pharmasave. This suite of interactive solutions enables patients to engage digitally with their pharmacy and empowers them with mobile refills, medication reminders and so much more. Each Pharmasave store operates independently to serve its individual community, tailoring both programs and services to the unique needs of customers and reinforcing the commitment to help all customers live well with Pharmasave.
