Loyal to Local: Bremo Pharmacy

In 1976, Dan Herbert saw a need within the local Richmond community and as a pharmacist, knew the prescription for how to help. His solution? A health-oriented pharmacy that focused on the whole person, rather than products.

Today, Herbert’s daughter, Catherine Cary, carries on those same core values as she guides and grows the local pharmacy.

“Every time we are thinking about adding a new product or service, we go back to those core values, is this something that’s going to help people get healthy and stay well?” says Cary.

From supporting the National Alliance on Mental Health Illness to securing scholarships for pharmacy technicians to attend pharmacy school, under Cary’s leadership, Bremo Pharmacy has proven its commitment to the community while also proving itself a pioneer within the areas of pharmacy and wellness.


At Bremo Pharmacy, the focus is indeed on relationships. Building relationships with the community, but also, with each customer who walks through the door.

“Connecting one on one with patients and allocating enough staff to help build relationships  is crucial. The focus is on doing things quickly but being able to make the choice that that’s not what’s best for the patient,” she says.

In taking care of the whole person, Cary and her team endeavor to “set up a different expectation of what you should expect from your pharmacy,” which she says, is in fact the most important part.

And that’s why Bremo Pharmacy, is Loyal to Local.
