Locally Owned & Run
Our location has been a pharmacy for a over half a century and was revamped in April 2009 with new ownership by long time community members, Joe and May Chehade.
Why We Opened
Before opening Playa Pharmacy, Joe managed chain pharmacies for two decades and always thought that healthcare could be more personalized and wanted to provide service to the community where he lived. May had extensive passion, knowledge and experience within herbs and supplements so it only made sense to join forces.
"Our goal was really to make a living by helping others."
Our community members are our extended family. The care that we strive to provide is that of a family member: honest and helpful. From the start we wanted our business to be individual-focused where the customer's health and happiness is the point of focus.
"We believe that helping the individual person with positive intentions will bring fulfillment to our business."
