Allan is a long-time Calgary resident, who graduated from UBC’s Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences in 1998. In addition to working as a community pharmacist, Allan served as the Director of the Pharmacy Innovation department at Pharmasave National, where he worked for 10 years. After moving back to Calgary in 2008 and working in the community for a few years, he realized that to fully embrace his vision to deliver top-quality patient care, he needed to open up his own pharmacy. Allan opened up his first store, Copperfield Pharmasave, in 2012, and based on the positive feedback from the local community at that store, he decided to open a second location in Springborough. He hopes to see strong growth in both stores where a continued focus on personalized care, unique products and services, and amazing customer service serve as the priorities for the patients and customers that frequent these locations!
