Finding Inspiration in Every Turn

" The two most important things in any company do not appear in its balance sheet : its reputation and its people.” — Henry Ford

Our Story

Carl Horowitz opened Carl's Pharmacy in 1952 when Port Credit was a small, sleepy community filled with orchards and trailer homes for weekend vacationers from Toronto.


We intend to carry on Carl’s pioneering spirit into the future. We strive to be more than just your local drug store, medical clinic, or pharmacy.


We will continue to provide you with the best value for the health care products and services we offer. Delivered with a smile. No extra charge.


We are your community drug store whose main purpose is supporting your health with; over the counter medications, prescription medications, other related health products and services all tailored to you.

The Story behind our slogan:

Our store first opened its doors to the local community of Port Credit in 1952. Subsequently, we joined the IDA national group of pharmacies, which was established in 1932.

To reflect both our deep commitment to Port Credit (1952) and the extensive healthcare experience of IDA (1932), we adopted the slogan:

"Taking care of Port Credit since 1932 "


We firmly believe in this. Caring for you and your family here in Mississauga with the utmost professionalism and care. We are a proud member of the I.D.A family of pharmacies who have been offering care to Canadians coast to coast since 1932.

We know your health. We know what medications you need, or may forget you need in order to stay living an active and healthy lifestyle. We are conveniently located in the middle of Port Credit, Mississauga, a quick drive from Toronto. 


You don’t have to drive several kilometers to access our services. Most of our staff live and work in the area.

Collectively we speak: French, Spanish, Italian, German, Arabic, and Vietnamese

Our staff all support local businesses. The income we earn doesn’t go to a foreign national head office. It stays here, much of it supporting local businesses.

We are truly grateful for our longtime patients and welcome new patients with open arms. 

Have a friend or family member looking to become a part of the Carl's family?


Don't hesitate to introduce them to any of our staff shown here. We would be more than happy to assess their needs and give them the service they deserve.


On behalf of Carl's Pharmacy,

We thank you!
