When people are ill, they usually either make a doctor's appointment or lie in bed and wait it out. Pharmaca Integrative Pharmacy has created a third option. Visits to its stores, which are scattered across the western US, are more casual than a doctor's visit but less passive than bed rest. Each location's team of health experts, including credentialed pharmacists, naturopathic doctors, herbalists, nutritionists, and more, consult with customers?no appointment needed.
But Pharmaca aims to serve its customers every day, not just on sick days. Its stores have been drawing droves of clients since 2000, partly because they meet so many needs in just one spot. Visitors can get prescriptions filled at a full-service pharmacy and browse shelves of homeopathic remedies, supplements, and over-the-counter health and beauty products. Much of the selection is curated with sustainability and organic ingredients in mind?hence cameos from brands such as Tom's of Maine, Dr. Hauschka, and Seventh Generation. The focus on sustainability extends into details, too. Customers get a credit when they bring their own bags instead of hauling away their purchases on a riding lawn mower.
