Costco pharmacy at St. Catherines

Has anyone been to the Costco pharmacy in St. Catherines? How much is the dispensing fee there? What services do they offer there? Are they any good?

If you go there, they will have the dispensing fee posted. Here it is $3.11, was 3.89 but recently dropped after shoppers was crying about the changes in the charges across the board.

What service do you want? No delivery, they do consultations etc. They may not always have everything if you want someone more exotic/rare, but they can usually get stuff in super fast. Overall they are good around here, and we use them for all our Rx's...

By the sounds of it, if you take lots of meds, it would be worth it to get a membership at Costco just for the low dispensing fees. To give you an idea of other pharmacies rates, - Shoppers charges $13.99.

You do not need membership to use the costco pharmacy, it is illegal for pharmacies to have membership.
If they stop you from entering costco without membership just say you're going to the pharmacy, they legally must let you through.

I've found Walmart's dispensing fees to be comparable to other pharmacies - whether it is the SDM's or those that are in No Frills or whatever. The other day, a glance at the wall sign said 9.99 or 8.99. So pricey when compared to Costco's 3.89 or 3.11 fees.

IF by diabetic supplies you mean the testing strips and the reader machines - yes.
