How many years has Bright Plaza Pharmacy been in business?
Bright Plaza Pharmacy was established in 1995. In 2002, the pharmacy moved in the same building to a much larger footprint of 2,500 square feet. The store added the Dr. Java Coffee Company to the front end as well as a Home Medical Section.
What are your favorite ways to get involved with your community?
We love to sponsor local events, schools and fundraisers. We have also partnered with a local philanthropy, Shelter’s Right Hand, to support donations that help women who need assistance from the Women and Children’s Crisis Center. The pharmacy is a drop-off location for donations that Shelter’s Right Hand sells in their thrift store. The thrift store sends all funds directly to the Women’s and Children’s Crisis Center which assists women and children in need within our community.
How do your patients and community shape your offerings? What keeps your patients coming back?
Our patients view our pharmacy as an extension of their family. Our staff knows patients by name, and we love our patients like they were our own family. We offer delivery, curbside service, bubble packaging, medication sync and almost anything else that will make our patients healthier and happy.
What do you think your patients love most about your pharmacy?
Our patients love the fact that they are not a number. Our staff wants to know about each patient and help them with their medication, OTC products, durable medical equipment, delivery and overall health needs. Patients have direct access to our pharmacists and their knowledge.
What does Locally Loved mean to you?
We are proud members of our community and love being an integral part of Whittier’s healthcare system.
