Our Store

 

Although Home Health Care Pharmacy opened at its present location in 1994, its history has roots that go back to the early 1900s. At that time, Clement’s Drug Store, the current pharmacy’s forerunner, was located at 901 Rosser Avenue in downtown Brandon. The store was purchased in 1960 by pharmacist John Allen. In 1977, John Allen and a group of six other pharmacists joined forces to establish a new buying group known as Super Thrifty Drugs Canada Ltd.  Clement’s Drug Store became a proud original member of this family of pharmacies. In 1989, the Clement Block was demolished and the pharmacy relocated across the street for a few years.

 

Home Health Care Pharmacy opened in 1994. This location, in addition to being a pharmacy, also specializes in aids for daily living, sports medicine, mobility aids, lift chairs and much more.

 

Joss March, a founding partner of Super Thrifty, was manager from 1995 until his semi-retirement in 2011. Lori Dangerfield, who started her pharmacy career with Super Thrifty in 1978, became pharmacist/manager in January 2012. Mark Mercure, a Board Certified Geriatric Pharmacist, joined the team at Home Health Care Pharmacy in 2018.
