Castlegar pharmacy offering drive-thru service

First drive-thru pharmacy in the area

Castlegar residents have a new option for getting their medications — a drive-thru window.

Therapeutic Health Experts (T.H.E.) Pharmacy has added the service as a means to enhance COVID-19 (and any future pandemic) precautions and support those with mobility issues.

The pharmacy is located close to the Castlegar Health Centre and Ward Taylor, the pharmacy’s owner, says that seeing customers struggle to come to the store after being treated at the hospital for an injury first put the idea in his mind. But it was the pandemic that pushed him to take action.

The window features a secure pass-through mechanism and includes features such as bullet-proof glass to enhance safety.

Taylor says the window is not just for prescriptions and the store’s employees will also grab other items off the shelf for their drive-thru customers.
