Safouh was born in Lebanon and raised in Syria. At the age of 18, he moved to Florence to study medicine/pharmacy. It was there that Safouh met his wife, Jaki, in the Cathedral (Duomo) on December 24, 1969. In 1975, on a snowy night, Safouh and Jaki arrived in Canada to pursue a better life and raise their four children.
In 1992 Safouh left his role as Pharmacy Manager at London Drugs to purchase and run the community icon "Point Grey Pharmacy". Point Grey Pharmacy has been part of the community since 1930 - in fact, you can still find old apothecary bottles from Point Grey Pharmacy in antique stores!
Safouh and his team care about the well-being of every customer who walks through the doors. Whether you’re a new customer, or someone Safouh's known for years, you are guaranteed in depth, personalized attention that can’t be offered by chain store pharmacies. Specializing in medication management protocols, tailormade advice and years of expertise, Safouh’s store is a cornerstone of the neighbourhood. This is why customers (near and far) trust Safouh with their prescription needs.
Point Grey Pharmacy also offers a wide range of over the counter medications, medical aids, vitamins and personal care items. The store is ‘much more than a pharmacy’ - it carries daily newspapers, greetings cards, gifts, household and clothing items in addition to esteemed brands including Michel Design Works, Thymes, Mahogany, Good Luck Socks, and BC brands Native North West (a wide range of products featuring art by Indigenous local artists), Relaxus (holistic healthcare and relaxation items), Paperblanks (diaries and notebooks), Cobble Hill Puzzles and delicious, Fair Trade™ Roger’s Chocolates from Victoria. We can also special order home healthcare aids and equipment (walkers, etc.) on request.
Point Grey Pharmacy is truly more than just a pharmacy or a store. It is a place to go if you need a laugh, some support or advice and a place to take your children or grandchildren for a visit.
