A new Pharmasave store will open its doors in Steveston Village on June 13, 2011 offering superior customer service and unique programs to the Steveston community.
Pharmacist/Owner, Peter Tong and his team are committed to providing customers with a shopping experience “above and beyond” that of a traditional drug store, by making each and every customer’s health, their number one concern.
Among the many services one can expect to find, some of the more unique services include skin-care and cosmetic consultations by the pharmacist, prescription compounding for people and pets (including lactose-free forms of most medications), natural supplement consultation and medication review services, gait assessment through state-of-the-art equipment, breastpump service and rentals, sleep apnea assessments, and a unique diabetes program run by a certified diabetes educator pharmacist!
With over 100 stores across British Columbia, and over 400 stores across Canada, Pharmasave has been growing strong since its humble beginning. The chain of independently owned stores was formed in 1981 when two small groups of independent pharmacies, United Pharmacies Ltd. and Western Drug Mart, joined forces.
Pharmasave’s success is primarily due to their non-traditional approaches to pharmacy practice and active involvement in the lives of their consumers.
“In 1981, pharmacists were dispensing medications and doing some counseling. Today, Pharmasave’s professional pharmacists are playing a much more proactive role in people’s health. In contrast to many of the larger pharmacy chains, we encourage our pharmacists to expand their traditional boundaries, by getting out from behind the counter, talking to their customers face to face, and assisting in their important health decisions.” – Dave Reston, CEO of Pharmasave’s Pacific region.
Peter believes strongly in the Pharmasave philosophy, and welcomes you to join him in this new approach to customer care.
