The concept behind Carthage Pharmacy Services, Inc. stores developed from a simple desire: bring together the benefits of a small, independently owned community pharmacy with the efficiency of a larger, well-managed company to improve the way retail pharmacy is practiced today.
The owners, Davin and Gail Vaughn, are both registered pharmacists who know the importance of patient-driven, customer oriented community pharmacy service. While attending college, each of them worked together for a local small chain drug store in Kansas City, and were taught ways to be successful, yet remain true to their community pharmacy roots. After graduation from pharmacy school both owners honed their business skills operating successful independent retail pharmacies. Today, Carthage Pharmacy Services, Inc. owns and operates two independent retail pharmacies in Missouri – Mt. Vernon HomeTown Pharmacy and Wilkinson Pharmacy. The two locations cater to the individual needs of their customer base by providing full service prescription services at each location, a full-line of over-the-counter medication selections, Home Medical Equipment, Medication Therapy Management services, acceptance of most insurance programs, in-town delivery service, and candles.
The success of Carthage Pharmacy Services is due to Davin and Gail’s commitment to customer service and employee empowerment. Come see for yourself -- let HomeTown Pharmacy be your "HomeTown" Pharmacy.
