Business Spotlight: Nelson's Drug Store

April 29, 2016

Nelson's Drug Store is a family-owned and operated pharmacy in downtown Glendora. It has been part of the community since 1936 when the Nelson family opened the doors for the first time. Dean Lee worked as a pharmacist for the Nelson family and eventually purchased the pharmacy from them in 1976. Dean's son, Stan, worked in the pharmacy alongside his father and eventually took over in 1992. Today, Stan and his son Jeff continue to run the pharmacy together providing the community with a pharmacy they can trust.

At Nelson's Drug Store they offer a full service pharmacy with a personal touch. Their gift shop will surprise you with its large selection of unique gift items. They have the perfect gift for those hard to shop for family and friends.  There is always a lovely selection of angels, scarves, wind chimes, pillows, candles, trinket boxes, Gingersnap jewelry, Ahava skin care, wedding gifts, music boxes, greeting cards and so much more.

When Nelson's first opened they processed everything by hand. All prescription labels were manually done on a typewriter. Now, they are using the most up to date electronic prescription software, which enables them to receive your prescriptions as quickly as the doctor can send them. They have a website with drug information and health articles. Refills can be ordered on the website or on their mobile phone app. Their gift shop has grown from having a few items to having hundreds of hand-selected items. Their friendly sales people are always willing to help hand select just the right gift. They always offer complimentary gift-wrapping.

 In the pharmacy they are very excited to offer RefillRx Mobile for all iPhones and Android phones. It provides you with a one tap solution for refilling your prescriptions. Simply download the app and scan the barcode on your bottle and watch as RefillRx Mobile sends your request to their pharmacy. If you’re not a fan of mobile app's then just visit their website at and create a profile. Once created you can view your prescriptions, send refill requests, see all of the drug information and the details pertaining to your prescribing doctor. While on their website, check their Wellness library. It is full of information about everything from acne to vitamins. The Health News section of their website is always full of up to date headlines regarding your health.

Nelson’s Drug Store would like to thank the community for 80 years of business!
