The KW Pharmacy has been serving the University Ave area of Waterloo since 1999. Over the years, we have grown and expanded to include a large prescription area, a private counseling room, and a custom compounding lab for custom medications.

Independently owned and operated, the KW Pharmacy provides you with a unique blend of local, neighbourly service and the backing of the most current services available. Plus, we’re conveniently located for our students at WLU, the University of Waterloo, and the Conestoga College campus. It’s a win-win for our customers.

You get to know the pharmacists and staff that serve you. More importantly, we get to know you not only as a customer but as a friend and member of our community. We are dedicated to making your health our first priority and will provide you with the best medication therapy possible.
