Meet Our Team
“Friends For Life”
John graduated from the University of North Carolina’s School of Pharmacy in 1975 and worked for several years for a couple of retail drugstore chains and independent pharmacies. In 2003, John used his years of experience to bring the good aspects of different companies he worked for along with his own ideas when he and his sons, Jeremy and Kris, decided to open Cape Fear Discount Drugs in Highland Centre. They wanted to provide outstanding customer service along with short wait times for their customers while giving them the feeling of their old fashioned drugstore they grew up with. This proved to be so successful that they opened up the Ramsey Street location in 2009, and a third location in Hope Mills in 2018.
John passed away in 2018 but his sons continue the family business with a focus on providing the best service in the Cape Fear Region.
Jeremy has been very instrumental in helping John start the company and grow it into what it has become today. In many ways, Jeremy has become the face of our company as he has starred in all of our television commercials. He is always to willing to do whatever needs to be done, whether it is taking care of our customers, marketing our services to health care providers, or negotiating contracts. When Jeremy is away from work, he enjoys fishing and spending time with his family.
Kris began his career in the hospitality industry and has a passion for excellent customer service. From the beginning of Cape Fear Discount Drug he has focused on making sure every customer is a part of the Cape Fear family and receives the best service any where in the region. The pharmacies have been voted the #1 pharmacy in the area for the last 15 years by their customers.
