PacePharmacy.com is an online website of an independent drugstore located in Canada. They claim that they have opened their business to reinvent the concept of community pharmacy by offering improved service and quality medicines. We recently investigated the drugstore to check the authenticity of their claims and the legitimacy of their business. Read below to know more about our findings and whether you should buy anything from them or not.

According to WhoIs data, the domain was first registered on 22nd January 2010 and currently has an expiry date of 22nd January 2020. This longer lifespan of the domain is the first sign that this business could be a legit one. The domain is also running on a paid GoDaddy.com server which is another positive sign. Moreover, the owner of this domain is not hiding its identity like rogue online pharmacies and has disclosed all the necessary information about their business and services.
The ScamAdviser data says the owner of this pharmacy is the Pharmacy Network Corp owned by the person named Adam Silvertown. The contact details provided on their website are working and we got a prompt response from one of their representative. The address provided by them is a legit one too as there we found the business located on the same address in Ontario, Canada. This all indicates them being a genuine business and not a rogue one. All their social media profiles are fully active and you can reach out to them very easily if you have any questions regarding their business, their support staff will happily solve your grievances.
However, to confirm they are a legit business, we needed to check their regulatory approvals and fortunately, we found that too. The business is registered with the Ontario College of Pharmacists and the accreditation provided by them is genuine. The website also has seals of several other authorities but without links though, but it should not be a major concern as these organizations don’t provide regulation certificates. So, you need to be a little more careful when buying anything from them.
The drugstore offers regular pharmacy services including prescriptions as well as pharmacist consultations They also offer specialty compounding services to tailor prescribed drugs to the patient’s exact needs. Some of their compounding services include:
❋ Hormone therapy for men
❋ HIV and hepatitis specialty treatment
❋ Pain management
❋ Sterile compounding
Payment and Shipping
The pharmacy apparently does not allow online purchases. You first need to fill out a form for prescription transfer or refills, then one of their representatives will call you to proceed with payment. No information is given on any of their accepted payment methods or how they will proceed once the payment has been confirmed.
The biggest drawback of this pharmacy is they don’t ship their products internationally, not even in the United States. They ship their products completely free from their pharmacy store located in Ontario and they only ship within the borders of Canada.
One of the best ways to judge the quality of a business is by reading their customer testimonials. Although the pharmacy does not have its testimonial page where you could read what their customers are saying, there are enough PacePharmacy.com reviews available on other platforms that would give a clear idea of how good this pharmacy and their services are. The reviews we came across looked genuine and varied, something you would expect from a legitimate business. There are both happy and pissed off customers who have rated this business honestly.
During our investigation, we found enough evidence to call this pharmacy a legit one. The owner’s transparency, necessary legal approvals, honest customer appraisals all points to them being a reliable and trustworthy business. However, it could have been better if they would have been a little more transparent about their payment process and the shipping options being used to deliver the products. The only thing we are disappointed with them is they only ship within Canada and not internationally. Apart from that, the business looks trustworthy and can be recommended to anyone residing within Canadian borders.
