About Us

We are a New kind of Pharmacy...

Or maybe a new kind of pharmacy mixed with an old type of pharmacy.

Anything but a chain type of pharmacy, where you wait in line to talk to people.

But at Tablet Pharmacy Parksville, you can chat with your pharmacist.

Even through text on 250.927.8032. We have things like small robots to count your medications, a state of the art waiting lounge, skin analytics and a new tech lab that customizes your compound.

Tablet Pharmacy Parksville is an Independent & Locally owned Pharmacy. Which means there is no Franchiser who shares a part of our profits. We pass it on to the customers.

All of that simply means we can take better care of you for less.

We are also people who take pleasure in looking after people and hope

to take care of you for years to come. “We are in for the long haul”.

With Love,

TABLET Pharmacy Parksville

"Where the old fashioned neighborhood pharmacy of yesterday,

meets the high tech pharmacy of tomorrow"

Ever wonder why we look so fresh

even on Mondays! It could be that

we saw a picture of Aara

from the day care, or may be a painting

she drew for us. Thank you Aara

for being the inspiration

and the energy source of the team.

Penny, the architect of Tablet Pharmacy Parksville, has now joined in with

full force as a Pharmacy Assistant.

She has varied experiences

from being an architect to working as

a Pharmacy Assistant at Rexall.

With two full time jobs (first as
