Pharmaca Integrative Pharmacy will open its newest earth-friendly store in Redmond on Saturday, Feb. 21.

The store adjacent to QFC grocery was recently remodeled with bamboo flooring, recycled carpeting, and low VOC paint to create a healthy and comfortable space. It is located at 15840 Redmond Way.

Pharmaca offers full prescription services, over-the-counter medications, and professional grade supplements as well as natural beauty products and unique gifts. The store is filled with more than 4,000 organic, natural and fair trade items from brands like Jurlique, Metagenics, Dr.Hauschka, and World of Good.

Pharmaca’s grand opening weekend will include the following health-oriented events:

• Goodie bags to the first 100 customers

• Free mini-facials & makeovers

• Free 10-minute massages

• Free reusable shopping bag with every $5.00 purchase

• Sunday, February 22nd: Free Pharmaca Vitamin D (90 tab) with every $5 purchase

• Monday, February 23rd: Free Pharmaca Body Lotion (16oz) with every $5 purchase

Pharmaca provides an accessible health resource at a time when health care costs are rising and employer provided coverage is shrinking. A staff of credentialed pharmacists, naturopathic doctors, nutritionists, herbalists and estheticians gives customers easy access to knowledgeable health care professionals without an appointment, insurance or headache.

“Our new space next to QFC grocery has a long history as a beloved neighborhood pharmacy,” said Barry Perzow, founder and CEO of Pharmaca Integrative Pharmacy. “We will continue this legacy while expanding our offerings to include organic and natural products and personal care items in a healthful environment.

“We look forward to providing the area a one-stop-shop for their traditional and natural medications and offering the expertise of our knowledgeable and licensed staff for all their personal needs. In an effort to keep the level of service our customers are accustomed to, we’ve kept long-time pharmacist and previous owner Rick Ytreeide on board as part of the Pharmaca team.”
