Southstar Drug was established by a husband and wife team in Naga City in 1937.  As a small business venture, it

was engaged in the retail of Chinese herbal medicines under the name Southern Drug. At a time when the country

was struggling to rise from the ashes of World War II, Southern Drug flourished.  In the 1950s, it expanded to offering

Western medicine, and changed its name to New South Star Drug. Passing on the tradition of friendly and

dependable service, the couple turned over New South Star Drug to their children in 1972. 

By the late 1990’s, the name was shortened to Southstar Drug.  In November 24, 2003, Southstar Drug was

incorporated and registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
