Our Team




Tony

Owner

Originally owned and operated by Roy Tucker, the reigns were handed over to his son Tony in 1985. And Tony continues to grow and expand the store in ways that Roy had never imaged all those years ago. Tony is well loved by his staff, many of them crediting their long stay at the store because of his leadership and ability to make Oak Bay Pharmasave like a big family. 

Tony enjoys the challenges of managing the store, and as can be expected, loves his staff and the community of people in Oak Bay that make up his loyal customers. 

Come on by experience Tony's care and dedication first hand.
