Reddendale Pharmacy has been owned and operated by the D'Souza family since May 2, 1992. We have been around as an independent, family run pharmacy for more than 25 years, surviving fires, ice storms and competition from the big box stores spread throughout Kingston.
Conveniently located in Kingston's West end, Reddendale Pharmacy is named after the beautiful lakeside neighbourhood which it primarily serves. As part of the Reddendale Plaza, we are surrounded by a complement of small businesses and services, including medical offices, a chiropractor, Indigenous Interprofessional Primary Care Team, great takeout and sit down restaurants, and a baker. Our community is a an important part of what we do; therefore we do our best to volunteer and be active in the area. We are happy and proud to call this city, and particularly the Reddendale neighbourhood, home.
