About Us

Our Story

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.

Locally Owned & Run
Why We Opened

​Before opening Playa Pharmacy, Joe has managed chain pharmacies for two decades and always thought that healthcare could be more personalized and wanted to provide this service in the community where he lived. May had extensive passion, knowledge and experience within herbs & supplements so it only made sense to join forces.
“Our goal was really to make a living by helping others.”

Our Community

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.”

Partnered with the best in the nation

As a small business, we aim to provide personalized service, but we don’t fall short on the many benefits of larger businesses, like negotiated pricing. We are partnered with the best in the industry to provide quality services and products such as:

  • McKesson

  • HealthMart

  • PDS

  • PCCA

  • IPC
