The History of Macdonald's Prescription
Since 1926, Macdonald’s Prescriptions has been serving the Lower Mainland’s health needs with the finest in pharmacy service. Two brothers, Austin and Vans Macdonald opened the first Macdonald’s Prescriptions in the Georgia Medical Building. The company was built on a strong foundation of excellent customer service and being able to provide medical services not provided anywhere else in Vancouver. In the 1960’s, Austin’s son, Bruce, became a pharmacist and began working for Macdonald’s. In 1962, Macdonald’s #2 opened in the Fairmont Medical Building, where it remains today. He opened a further two locations over the next 15 years. In 1974, Vince Zuccaro joined the team at Macdonald’s Prescriptions #2 and soon became the Pharmacy Manager. In 1985, Vince and Tony Fera purchased Macdonald’s Prescriptions #2 and Compounding Lab. Together, they continued to serve the health care needs of their patients. In 2006, Tony retired. It was at this time that Jeff Curtis and Ben Lee became partners with Vince.
Over the years, we have developed and maintained a variety of outstanding services to meet the needs of patients and health care professionals. The entire Macdonald’s Prescriptions staff pride themselves in the tradition of the knowledge and experience which they have acquired over the years.
