San Joaquin Drug


San Joaquin Drug is a family owned community pharmacy serving the areas of Planada, Le Grand, Merced, Cathey’s Valley, and Mariposa with free delivery.
Mike & Mary Bass opened San Joaquin drug August 7th, 2000. Mike received his bachelor’s degree at California State University, Stanislaus and earned his doctorate from Idaho State University. Previous to San Joaquin Drug, Mike worked for the Rite Aid chain for 7 years. Desiring to make a larger splash, Mike set out to start his own business and San Joaquin Drug was born.
Today, San Joaquin Drug continues to be family owned and operated. Mike’s wife, Mary and three daughters, Katie, Jenni and Erin have played an active role in the company. Katie is currently completing her PharmD and works alongside her father Mike. You’ll see her smiling face as you enter the pharmacy. Katie now runs the pharmacy with the same customer service taught to her by her parents.
We love getting involved with our community and local non-profits. We are actively involved with CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates), the Chamber of Commerce of Merced, Mariposa and Hispanic Community, Children’s Rights Movement, Asthma Coalition and Binational Health Week, to name a few. To help the community stay aware and prepared we display a colored flag which represents the air quality of Merced County for the day.
In addition, each fall we host an Annual Health Fair, where clinical services are offered and the community is invited to enjoy food, drink, music and meet local health care professionals.
