The story of Clements Pharmacy

Location moved to Oak and Esplanade in 1952

Some buildings of Chemainus rarely change, but over the years different enterprises move in and then on.

Did you know one of the earliest pharmacies was housed in two buildings that are both still standing? Stuart Clements opened a pharmacy in the building on the corner of Chemainus Road and Mill Street in 1928. He bought it from Jerry Monk, who had been the town barber.

When Mr. Clements needed to expand, he moved down to Oak and Esplanade in 1952.

The Chemainus Valley Museum has a wonderful collection of artifacts from the Clements Pharmacy on display.

The museum is located at 9799 Waterwheel Cres. It’s open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
