The goal of Save Now Discount Pharmacy is to provide affordable prices for prescription drugs, regardless of coverage, while offering the valuable service of consulting directly with a licensed pharmacist.

Todd McElroy, founder and President of Save Now Discount Pharmacy, is proving, by eliminating this costly relationship, that his unique business model can "bring affordable medications to all…while maintaining a superior level of service and care for our customers. For those now getting their medications in Canada, we want to be the 'at home' alternative."
