Our History

We are a locally owned pharmacy and home medical supply company that was established in 1933 in downtown Jacksonville by Graham Johnson. Over the years, pharmacists that have worked in our stores have taken ownership to continue the tradition, service and personality that you come to expect from a local pharmacy. Louis Shields came to work in 1951 and went on to buy the business. As it expanded, Larry Denning and Ray Johnson acquired the business in 1986. Anthony Medlin, a Hampstead local, joined the company in 1996 and acquired the business in 2004. Since then, we have opened other pharmacies and Home Medical Equipment offices in Jacksonville, Hampstead, and Wilmington.

Today, our pharmacy in Hampstead provides fast, friendly service to the community. Co-owner Amanda Whitley, PharmD, makes sure to provide the best service available. We take most all insurances and offer fast prescription turnaround. The last thing you want when you are sick is to have to wait 2 hours for you medications. We also provide a full immunization program.

Our Medical Equipment Offices in Jacksonville and Wilmington provide the most advanced care to keep you well at home. We have mobility aids from crutches to walkers and scooters. We also have respiratory therapists on staff to provide at home oxygen therapy and CPAP devices. If you are currently pulling a cart behind you for your portable oxygen, you should contact us to see more up to date alternatives.

Both equipment offices offer new mother care and breast pumps. Co-Owner Barbara Medlin, RN, is also a certified fitter and can fit you with mastectomy bras, back braces, and custom molded diabetic shoes if needed.

We would like to thank all of the local communities who we support, and in turn, support us.
