La Mesa’s Costco making pet drugs cheaper

June 17, 2024 – Our town took a magical trip down memory lane today. The Model T Ford Club of America rolled into town for their 2024 National Tour. 

Dozens of these magnificent Model T’s lined our streets. It felt like stepping back in time.

The visitors took a stroll through our town’s rich history, from the old Lakeside Inn, the Auto Speedway route, made famous by racing legend Barney Oldfield, to our charming historic buildings and homes.

The Lakeside Historical Society opened their doors, welcoming everyone to explore the chapel, museum, Gift Shop, and the Speedway monument. It was a little slice of the past brought back to life.

Their visit was short, but the memories will last a lifetime. A huge thank you to the Model T Ford Club of America for stopping by and making the day in our hometown so special.

The pharmacy at La Mesa’s Costco Wholesale store, 8125 Fletcher Parkway, is now offering pet medications, reports Deborah McElravy, pharmacy manager. Costco may offer a cheaper price for your pet’s medications compared to purchasing directly from a veterinarian because some vets mark-up the cost of prescriptions, McElravy said.

The Costco pharmacy in La Mesa offers a variety of pet medications. Among the most popular pet meds are chewable tablets that can help pets with arthritis with their hip and joint flexibility. To reach the pharmacy at the Costco Wholesale store in La Mesa, call (619) 667-8520. McElravy, a pharmacist since 1974, and an East County resident for more than 30 years, serves on the Grossmont Healthcare District board of directors.
