Arthur Metu, RPh, opened the doors of Capital City Pharmacy at 339 Georgia Street on January 6, 2016. With a twenty year history working as a pharmacist in the Vallejo area, his original plan was to locate in the north east of downtown. Yet, as he began looking at sites, Metu become enamored with the downtown’s historic architecture. He named his business Capital City Pharmacy as a tribute to Vallejo’s proud history as California’s state capital for brief periods in 1852 and 1853. The opening of Capital City Pharmacy returns this category to downtown, bringing local commerce in line with the retail services required for a thriving and complete neighborhood. Mr. Metu conveyed his gratitude to the City and the local business community, who welcomed him and offered assistance along the way.
