Castlegar Pharmacy offering drive-thru

First driving pharmacy in the region

Residents of Castlegar have a new option to get their medication – a drive-thru window.

Pharmacy Therapeutic Health Experts (THE) added the service as a way to improve precautions against COVID-19 (and any future pandemics) and to support people with mobility issues.

The pharmacy is located near the Castlegar Health Center and Ward Taylor, the pharmacy owner, says seeing customers struggle to come to the store after being treated in hospital for an injury first gave him the idea. . But it was the pandemic that prompted him to take action.

The window has a secure passage mechanism and includes features such as bulletproof glass to enhance security.

Taylor says the window isn’t just for prescriptions, and store workers will also be taking other items off the shelves for their customers while driving.
