How is Pharmacy BC.com different from Medicine Shoppe?

All PharmacyBC Groups pharmacies are Medicine Shoppes but not all Medicine Shoppes are in the Pharmacy BC Group.
The Group is differentiated from the parent company of Medicine Shoppe by several key factors.

  • We also pioneered the “Pharmacy With Care Program”, the first of its kind in the country. This program consists of a Pharmacy Team member going to you or your family members home everyday to help with their medication needs. Some of the services include administering medications, helping with insulin injections, daily blood pressure readings and daily blood glucose readings.
