Keeping Tradition Alive In Altadena

Front cover WCPShopping local doesn’t equate to shopping at a big box chain centered in communities such our beloved Altadena. Shopping local means that a community supports their local small businesses. Webster’s Community Pharmacy has been a firm long-standing supporter of its customers since 1926. Current owners Michael and Meredith Miller have continued the legacy of this establishment while bringing in fresh ideas, building on personal relationships with their customers, providing a family-friendly work environment for their employees and much more.

From our wildly popular Fancy Food Truck Fridays to our Holiday Open House and special engagements, every event we produce is tailored to the heart of our community. We love spending time with our customers! Our staff is fully committed to making sure each customer feels like they are part of the family. Unlike big box stores who rely heavily on databases to look up customers’ names, our staff knows most customers by first name as well their history.

At Webster’s Community Pharmacy we know that this slice of Altadena pie enjoys the Mayberry touch. That’s why we provide Delivery Service to our customers’ homes or place of business within Altadena. We also accept most prescription plans while charging the same amount for them as big box chains, and have them ready in less than 10 minutes.

This nod to nostalgia is mixed with current social media trends including other time proven means of communication. Custom-made newsletters with store news and information are published monthly. Meredith Miller is the voice of our store’s Facebook Page sharing daily store news, pharmaceutical related information and community stories. Stop by our page to say hello to Meredith, she will happily respond. You can also find us on Yelp, Twitter, Instagram and other popular social media platforms.

Support local this year as we continue to develop new ways to better serve our community. We look forward to serving you soon!

Paco at Fancy Food Truck Friday Recap

Under a warm and humid evening many of our neighbors in Altadena gathered to welcome Brave Paco during Webster’s Fancy Food Truck Friday on August 12. He was greeted with an applause followed by curious giggles from the crowds of people waiting to place their orders from the caravan of food trucks. Children were not the only ones eager to take their photo with the little pooch and to receive his “paw-tograph”.

It was such a joy to see the community of Altadena gather to spend time with each other over a meal. Each month Webster’s hosts a variety of food trucks that every palate could enjoy. Very appropriately for the month of August, A Rockin Ice joined us on that evening serving up melon sized Hawaiian shaved ice. It was the perfect treat for such a warm evening. We also had a few other new trucks that rolled into Webster’s Parking lot; Indian Jones Chow Truck added just the right amount of spice to the event while Grill Em All heated things up with their juicy burgers, and Gringo Tacos Truck were the first to run out of their irresistible dishes. The ever popular Shrimp Pimp and Hungry Nomad were back again serving up their best to the hungry crowd.

Many of our neighbors brought their furry friends with them for the first time. Perhaps to meet Brave Paco? They weren’t the only ones interested in meeting the pint sized hero, Fox11 news was there too to get the scoop! With all this attention it was pleasing to see that Brave Paco has kept his humble nature. T-shirts were sold to help support his fellow canines in rescue shelters. His handler Erik Knight happily shared information about the lovable pooch, the horrifying robbery, and the need to support local dog rescues. Overall it was another great community event with a special guest.
