Sean Cheverie

Pharmacist - Owner

Sean is the Pharmacist-Owner at both Amherst Pharmasave and Wright's Pharmasave.  Wright's Pharmasave was purchased in 1999 and Amherst Pharmasave was built from the ground up in December of 2001, and is already enjoying its 10th Year Anniversary. After many years as a Pharmacist, Sean realized there was more he could do to customize a store to the Amherst Community, having lived in Amherst for over 16 years. Amherst Pharmasave quickly grew from that inspiration, applying his Pharmacy knowledge, his Business and Management experience, and love of the community. The store continues to grow, after several expansions! Sean attributes his successes to a very loyal and dedicated staff which has translated into superior customer service.

Sean received his Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy from Dalhouise University. When not at either location, Sean loves to spend time with his family, camping in the summer, skiing in the winter.  Sean enjoys travelling with the family whether it be somewhere warm and sunny or to the nearest hockey rink.

Bart and Sean both co-own Amherst Pharmasave and Wright’s Pharmasave, enjoying their business partnership. He loves the activity of the stores, where “something is always going on,” and there’s never a dull moment. He is proud of the growth of the Amherst location, considering the competition in the area, and is excited to see the ideas that he and Sean implement come to fruition on a daily basis. “It’s always rewarding to see your hard work paying off - not always right away, but in time.”
