Our Store

 

When Medical Centre in downtown Brandon opened in 1967, it was touted as being “The New Concept Pharmacy” with bright open spaces and an ultra modern decor.  In 1977 Medical Centre Pharmacy joined the new venture of Super Thrifty Drugs Canada Ltd.

 

Over fifty years later, Medical Centre continues to offer the same professional prescription service, only now, pharmacists have expanded practice skills such as prescribing medications for minor conditions, can administer vaccinations and are authorized to prescribe medications for smoking cessation.

 

Tom Busch, a founding partner of Super Thrifty, was pharmacist/manager/owner from 1968 until his semi-retirement in 2012. At that time Rob Jaska, who started his career in 1996 at this location, assumed the role of pharmacist/manager/owner. Tobi Derksen joined the team in 2016. Allison Barclay started with Super Thrifty in 2007. In 2013, Allison joined Medical Centre Pharmacy on a part-time basis. Tyler Campbell worked as a relief pharmacist for the Super Thrifty team for three years. In 2018, Tyler accepted a fulltime position at Medical Centre Pharmacy.

Our Community

 

Brandon is located on the banks of the Assiniboine River in southwestern Manitoba. It’s the second largest city in Manitoba, with a population of 49,000 and a trading area of 180,000 people. Known as “The Wheat City” due to its agricultural economy, Brandon is also home to manufacturing, health care, transportation and food processing.

 

The Keystone Centre, one of the largest facilities of its type in Canada, is a multi-purpose facility which serves as home of the Brandon Wheat Kings hockey team and the Royal Manitoba Winter Fair. Established in 1882, Royal Winter Fair is only one of two annual fairs in Canada to receive Royal patronage and is one of the largest agricultural events in Western Canada.

 

Brandon University and Assiniboine Community College offer post secondary educational opportunities. Manitoba Emergency Services College offers training for careers for firefighters, primary care paramedics or emergency services personnel.  Brandon has something for every sports enthusiast, indoors or out, summer or winter.  Manitoba’s many recreational areas, such as Riding Mountain National Park and Spruce Woods Provincial Park are within easy driving distance.

He is certified to provide vaccines and other injections, to prescribe medications for self-limiting conditions and to prescribe drugs and counsel to aid in smoking cessation.

Rob is a strong believer in patient-centred care and derives the most job satisfaction when “I know that I’ve made some kind of difference to make someone’s day, week or month better by improving or maintaining their health”. With Super Thrifty, Rob feels he’s been enabled to be directly involved with his patients and know each one and to truly be their pharmacist. “We Care” is so much more than a motto with our group.”
