In January 2003, Tammie Toriglia and John Shillabeer opened Pharmasave Health Centre in Parksville, BC. A small store in the beginning, Parksville Pharmasave has grown significantly in both size and range of services offered.

Together, they had the store expanded and updated with a brand new look and feel that will help them provide a larger range of services and products to better serve the community.  Though the store and staff have grown, the “small store” feel and level of customer service has not changed, and helping improve the health and well-being of their customers continues to be the number one priority for the staff.
