Independent Pharmacy Owner Jerry Shapiro

Uptown Drug & Gift Shop, a family-run business established in 1945. The proprietors are Jo Ann and Jerry Shapiro, who purchased the store from Jerry’s parents in 1969. For twenty-seven years, the store was located in the mid-Wilshire area. Seeing the rebirth of downtown L.A., we decided to move our business there in August of 2004.

Jerry’s pharmacy is dedicated to helping all of their patients receive the best possible medical care as it relates to pharmacy services. First and foremost, Jerry and his team are prescription specialists. In order to maintain their high standards, we have gathered together a varied and large staff. Each member’s goal is to make sure that every patient gets the personal attention that they deserve.
