BUSINESS NOTEBOOK: Pharmacy opens, cash for Tech Lab


Wellness Pharmacy has opened at 13737 96th Ave., adjacent to Surrey Memorial Hospital.

The community and compound pharmacy opened in January, and will celebrate with a two-part grand opening event on April 29. The public event will feature prize draws, food and refreshments from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.; the private evening event for health care professionals will feature cocktails and a silent auction from 4 p.m to 8 p.m.

"Because, we have a strong mandate towards providing and supporting health services within the community, we are donating $10,000 to the Surrey Memorial Hospital Foundation" at the grand-opening event, Sally Mark, the pharmacy’s Marketing Director, told the Now.

"And we are hosting a silent auction at the event, where proceeds from the auction will also be donated towards the Surrey Memorial Hospital Foundation."

Jane Adams, CEO of the hospital foundation, will be attending the grand opening to receive the donation.

This is the newest location to open for the family-owned and operated Naz’s and Wellness Pharmacy Group, which also operates five other locations, including  Naz’s Pharmacy locations on 72nd Avenue in Surrey and on 120th Street in North Delta.


Representatives with Future Shop were recently at Strawberry Hill Elementary in Surrey to present a $1,400 grant as part of the company’s Tech Lab program.

Students at the school will use the money to build a "Library Pi" club in order to better develop coding and computer skills.
