Today, we’re celebrating the work of everyone at Boone Drugs Inc in North Carolina. Now with 17 locations, the original Boone Drug Company was founded in 1919—making it 101 years old.

During the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, the pharmacies have offered free county-wide delivery and curbside pickup at many locations, all while keeping their staff and patients safe.

“For a local pharmacy that’s been around for 101 years now, we will make sure to do whatever it takes to provide for our community,” said Jessica Welch, a marketing and advertising coordinator for the pharmacy chain, in a message to Pharmacy Times.

Pharmacy Times® wants to celebrate the amazing pharmacy staff members who are on the front lines every day. Nominate someone in your pharmacy by emailing AAntrim@pharmacytimes.com with their name, position, and why they’re a hero!
