Our History

Pleasant Hills Apothecary was founded by Ken Evancic in 1975. He was determined to provide a higher level of personal pharmaceutical care for the greater South Hills area. For every year since, Ken and the Pleasant Hills Apothecary have lovingly and passionately helped the families of our community.

Since then, the amazing people of Pleasant Hills (and beyond) have become family to us. We’ve grown so closely to our customers, joining them in their personal medical journeys for over 40 years. We’ve watched teenagers grow into grandparents, and we’ve been there every step of the way. We look forward to doing so all over again, with a new generation of care to our customers.

Today, the pharmacy is owned by Ken’s children, Kevin and Melissa. We proudly carry the traditions and dedication that our father established all those years ago, and we work hard to be the best pharmacy you can find.

What People Say About Us

A great little secret in Pleasant Hills. Not the biggest store in the world, but probably the store with the biggest heart. Everyone here goes out of their way to give extra attention to their customers, they are very educated, and when they talk about providing a warm place for customers, they mean it. Just loving, wonderful people here.

Cheri A.

Very knowledgeable. Very friendly. They know my name and my medical history and don't even need to look me up in the computer. I think that's how a pharmacy should be. Don't go to Giant Eagle or CVS, go to the Apothecary!

John T.

We've been coming to the Apothecary since we moved here in 1983, and they've taken great care of me and my husband, as well as our kids. They are darling people who deserve all the success they've had.

June W.

I can't thank Ken and the gang enough. They've done wonders for me with custom hormone replacement. I have stills disease and they've been able to help me when everyone thought there was a good chance I could die. They are wonderful people.

Regina B.

My kid fell out of a tree and needed a medication for an infection that they don't usually make for children. Kevin was able to help us create the medication from scratch and we didn't have to drive hours away to find it. Been a customer ever since.

Frank B.

My Review: The Pleasant Hills Apothecary has got great prices, great people, and great service. It's sad that I'm usually sick when I go here but that's what they do and they do it well.

Ashley G.

Always extremely helpful and friendly. If they don't have what you need, they will find it for you. I just ordered plastic adult bibs from them and they were 1/2 the price that I could get them for on the internet! They compound medications for creams that I use for pain which I couldn t find anywhere else. Anytime you need something, contact them. If they don t have it, they will get it for you.

Audrey S.

I found this pharmacy because I needed a place to compound meds for my cat and there aren't many that do. The service is excellent, scripts are filled fast. Free delivery service. They also sell a lot of medical supplies.
