What Makes Us Different?
Pucci's Pharmacy has been serving the Sacramento area for nearly 90 years. In 1930, Peter A. Pucci opened Homeland Pharmacy at 19th Street and Broadway. Two years later, Peter and his brother Dino opened Pucci's Pharmacy at 10th and J Street and moved Pucci’s Professional Pharmacy to 26th and I Streets in 1948, sensing that Sacramento would be expanding to the east of downtown. In 1979, Peter and Dino retired and sold their business to Tom and Linda Nelson.
In 1991, the Nelsons moved Pucci's Pharmacy to 28th and J Street, which was formerly the home of Sims Hardware, a Sacramento institution in itself.
In 2016 Clint Hopkins was working at an independent pharmacy. He and his husband Joel Hockman owned a home senior care business. They were interested in community pharmacy ownership and learned from their financial planner about a potential seller quietly searching for a buyer.
They knew Pucci’s was the right fit from their first meeting with Tom. “While we were excited about each pharmacy we looked at, when we visited with Tom, we knew this was the community we wanted to be a part of. It mirrored our Dallas community - close knit, diverse population with strong personal relationships.
Since owning Pucci’s Joel and Clint have built personal relationships within the community to demonstrate the wide service offerings that an independent pharmacy offers. In 2021 due to growth they moved the pharmacy to is present location at 3257 Folsom Blvd.
