About Lorraine’s Pharmacy


Erin Briggs, Owner

Erin Briggs, with husband Chris

Mother of four.  Erin and Chris purchased Lorraine's Pharmacy from Chris' mother, Lorraine Briggs, in 1986 when they formed C&E Investments. In those early years of business ownership, Erin wore many hats at the pharmacy serving as owner, office manager, and pharmacy assistant.  In the late 90’s, when the pharmacy began to specialize in medication compounding, she spent many late nights in the compounding lab making sure patients received their compounded prescriptions in a timely fashion.  In more recent years, Erin has focused on using her background as a registered nurse to help in the growth of more clinically-focused patient care initiatives.  For example, Erin is currently the clinical coordinator for the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Program.  To book a weight loss consultation with Erin, call Lorraine’s Pharmasave to set up an appointment.

Outside of the pharmacy, Erin is a dedicated wife and mother who enjoys spending time with her family; husband Chris, and four children — Ryan, Kaleigh, Sean, and Shannon.  Erin also enjoys baking, cooking, golfing, and reading. 

Peter Glofcheskie, Front Store Manager

Father of three. Began his pharmacy experience working for Lorraine and Ron Briggs at Lorraine's Pharmacy from 1973 to 1975. After graduating from Business Administration at Algonquin College in Ottawa, Peter returned to Lorraine's in 1978.

Since becoming the front store manager, Peter has continually strived to expand and grow the non-pharmacy services offered by Lorraine's Pharmacy.




Donna Chapeskie, Stock Room Manager

Joined Lorraine's Pharmacy in 1983 as head cashier until 1994 when she moved into the Photo department. Currently, Donna is the stock room manager where she makes sure the over-the-counter product section is always fully stocked with the tried and true products as well as the latest products on the market. She is also an Ideal Protein Weight Loss Program coach. Donna can often be found in the stock room laughing with Peter, Kelly and Debbie about something (we're never really sure about exactly what) or in the OTC section showing Steve that the product actually is in stock, and that he should get his eyes checked.

Outside of the pharmacy, Donna enjoys spending time with her husband, Kevin. She also enjoys cross-stitch, reading, and spoiling her pooch, "Holly." However, we all know that she'd rather be in Las Vegas fulfilling her destiny as a professional gambler, since her good luck at the casino is matched only in magnitude by Peter's bad luck on a bicycle.

Debbie McKenzie, Office Manager

Mother of four.  Joined Lorraine’s Pharmasave in 2011.  Currently, Debbie is the Office Manager where she runs a tight ship.  In fact, she is the only staff member who gets away with calling Chris, “Christopher”.

Outside of the pharmacy, Debbie is a wife and mother who enjoys spending time with her family; husband – Jim, and four children – Courtney, Jesse, Kelsey, and Brennan.  Debbie’s hobbies include quilting, reading, and travelling.  However, we all think Debbie should write a parenting advice column since she is always a wealth of information for her coworkers that have younger kids than her.  “Dear Debbie, . . . . . .”
