In 1930 Peter and his brother Dino Pucci opened Pucci's Pharmacy at 10th and J Streets. For 86 years, Pucci's has been focused on the health and wellness of Sacramento. Tom and Linda Nelson purchased Pucci's Pharmacy in 1979 and continued the Pucci family legacy of exceptional customer service and outstanding healthcare. Clint Hopkins and Joel Hockman now carry the torch further into the 21st century as Tom and Linda enter retirement. Clint and Joel are committed to delivering on the philosophy that Peter and Dino started, which is to treat everyone like family. Please stop by and meet Dr. Clint and experience the personalized care Pucci's provides.
