Elephant Continues to Expand

WALNUT CREEK, Calif Elephant Pharm has opened its fourth store in the city of Walnut Creek, Calif., a 12,000-square-foot location on South California Blvd. The store occupies part of a building that was an Albertson’s supermarket and is now home to a Trader Joe’s.

The independent drug store chain – formerly known as Elephant Pharmacy – says the store offers a mix of both herbal and conventional medications and will carry a large selection of baby products and stationary but no food.

CEO Kathi Lentzsch said the store also has a different look than its other locations with mix of ‘upbeat but warm’ blues and greens.

“It’s kind of unusual,” said Lentzsch. “I don’t think most drug stores pay attention to the colors in their stores.” She added that Elephant Pharm chose Walnut Creek as a store site because of is affluent and health-conscious demographic.
