Laura and Graeme Carlson

During the month of September, Pharmasave is celebrating its 30th anniversary of serving communities throughout Canada.

Laura and Graeme Carlson took over ownership of the local store in September 1990 and have been committed to serving Grand Forks and surrounding communities since the first day.

The professionalism and leadership Laura and Graeme have demonstrated over the years is evident through their many loyal customers and staff.

Every effort is made to ensure the needs of customers are met and that they receive the best service possible.

Some of the staff have worked at Pharmasave for over 20 years and a number of others have been with the store in excess of 10 years.

This a true testament to the “Pharmasave family” approach to serving customers and ensuring the well being of staff.

Pharmasave has consistently given back to the community, both at the local and provincial level.

At the local level, Pharmasave sponsors a number of community events and provides donations to non-profit organizations on an ongoing basis.

In addition to local support, Pharmasave, along with its customers, help support provincial initiatives such as Variety – The Children’s Charity, the Canadian Cancer Society and the Canucks for Kids fund.

Laura and Graeme, as well as their staff and management, want to take this opportunity to give back and say thank you.

Everyone is invited to come out and help celebrate Pharmasave’s 30th anniversary on Friday, Sept. 23.  We hope to see you there.
