- Our Mission
To provide the perfect marriage of new-age pharmacy service with old-fashioned charm.
Delray Shores Pharmacy is the longest standing, family-owned, independent pharmacy in Delray Beach. Founded in 1975 by late pharmacist Thom Dildine and his wife Carol, DSP quickly became “the” pharmacy in town and a staple among the medical community. While we have always provided medications at discount prices, offered free local delivery service, and offered expert medication advice, what has truly separated us from the average pharmacy is our emphasis on the customer “experience”. Our reputation has, is, and always will be built on the foundation that people deserve exceptional service when it comes to their health and medications. This means going above and beyond for our patients and treating them like they are family.
Originally located on Lake Ida Road just west of Congress Avenue, DSP moved into its second location within the Congress Commerce Center in 2004 in anticipation of pharmacist T.J.’s graduation from pharmacy school. With Thom Sr. retiring in early 2006, the torch was passed to his son and the 2nd generation of the legacy commenced. Having grown up in the pharmacy as a child and later working beside his father as an adult, T.J. was able to learn and absorb many skills pertaining to the practice of pharmacy that cannot be taught in school. Those father-son experiences created the ability to offer something extra special for our patients and their healthcare needs.
Fast forward to 2017, Delray Shores Pharmacy has relocated once again into a brand new building at 124 NE 5th Avenue in downtown Delray Beach. Five years from concept to reality, The Flossy B. Building, named after Tj and wife Rhyan’s daughter, will house the pharmacy as well as a welcomed new addition “The Foxworth Fountain”. The fountain, named after their son Foxworth (“Fox”), is an old-fashioned soda fountain counter serving classic hand-stirred sodas, egg creams, and ice cream floats in addition to creative breakfast and lunch items. We will also be providing pharmacy compounding services as well as calendar events filled with various health and wellness information sessions in our lecture room.
While our core values remain unchanged, we take aim at bettering ourselves each and every day. With advancements in technology, the implementation of added-value products and wellness services, and our focus on re-creating the old-fashioned pharmacy experience, Delray Shores Pharmacy & Soda Fountain strives to always be the best pharmacy in town. We greatly appreciate your loyalty and the opportunity to be YOUR pharmacy.
