The Pill Box Pharmacy has turned out to be a community-driven business. Its mission was to help get medications out to its patients as quickly and efficiently as possible, while taking the time to really care for each patient. The community has wrapped their arms around the pharmacy to help it grow and reach more and more people, and make it easier for people to get their medications closer to home.
The Pill Box Pharmacy has been in existence, although with different names, since June of 2007. Within the first year, the pharmacy moved to an expanded location within the Pavilion Plaza Shopping Center that included a drive-thru window. While the pharmacy has increased their team, their products, and their services through the years, it continues to be a place where you are treated like a neighbor and called by name.
In the fall of 2010, a second location was added on Third Street. This pharmacy location was quickly embraced by the local community and outgrew its small space within just a couple of years. The pharmacy was relocated in 2013 to the old MLK Library just a few blocks away, where we were able to add an OTC section, a drive thru window, and a bright beautiful pharmacy area where we are proud to serve our friends and neighbors. The staff at The Pill Box Pharmacy #002 enjoys getting out into the community to help give back to their friends & neighbors that they help take care of every day!
The Pill Box #003 was opened on Bolton Avenue in 2013 to serve the needs of those living and working in the downtown & Garden District areas. The pharmacy was relocated a block away in 2019 and continues to serve the needs of those all along the Bolton corridor.
