About Us

We are a New+Old kind of Pharmacy...

best pharmacist

We established Tablet Pharmacy because we wanted to love our work every day, instead of being pharmacists in large corporate chains where we'd constantly chase sales targets. After all, those targets weren't the reason we pursued our education.


One of the main reasons small independent pharmacies have struggled is due to price competition. Our solution was simple: we decided not to become part of the traditional franchise model. By doing so, we save on franchise fees and royalties that would have otherwise gone towards the banner. Instead, we pass those savings directly to you, our valued patient. This way, we're able to offer competitive prices by cutting out the middleman.


At Tablet, we harken back to the old-school boutique pharmacy model, where the patient knows their pharmacist, and the pharmacist truly understands the patient.


And competitive pricing is just the start of what we offer. A welcoming lounge with a large TV playing Mr. Bean episodes awaits you while your prescriptions are prepared. At Tablet, we believe that customer service is not just a department, but an ingrained culture.


Getting to know you helps us in many ways, particularly when it comes to communicating with your physician. We're here to assist you in selecting the best treatment alternatives, answering clinical questions, and ensuring that you have all the information you need.


And yes, while we're solely focused on pharmacy services and may not stock groceries, we assure you that your medication regimen is in the best hands—under the care of dedicated experts. Give us a try, and experience the best of both worlds for yourself!
