Talk to me about Elephant Pharm in the Bay area - Page 2

post #21 of 22
You could try Pharmaca, but they are only in Novato or Mill Valley. Jack's Drugstore in San Ansemo is a nice little small town kind of place, but it's definitely geared toward seniors (and I find their prescription bottles really annoying and hard to open). Ross Valley Pharmacy is supposed to be good, but I've never worked with them.

The closing of Elephant has definitely left a void in central Marin.

while i am all for supporting small business with your dollar and supporting mom-n-pops, this is not what happened at elephant pharm.

sadly, they overextended themselves- opening too many stores and taking on too much debt. when people cut back because of the recession, they did not meet their overly-sunny projections of income and folded quite quickly. it was bad business decisions that closed elephant, not a lack of patronage.

sadly, the employees were given just as little notice as the customers. some will never be paid their wages owed, because of these bad decisions...
