Julie Pellett, one of two pharmacists, worked as the inpatient pharmacist for Mercy Hospital for 16 years.
Taylor Cation, a 2012 graduate of Fort Scott High School and most recently from Kansas University with a degree in pharmacy in 2018, is the second pharmacist.
“Taylor shadowed us at Mercy,” Pellet said. “She was one of my favorite students to do that.”
“I’ll do my boards this summer, by the middle of July I’ll know my results,” Cation said.
Ashley Shelton is the pharmacy technician, with eight years experience working for the former Woods Supermarket pharmacy as a technician.
The pharmacy is located inside the grocery store and has a drive-through window on the north.
“We offer personalized care, more flexibility, competitive pricing and friendly service,” Pellet said.
“We offer compounding more than other chain stores,” she said.
- daily medicine packs, to organize medicine for patients
- synchronization of all meds to be due and filled at the same time, to avoid several trips
- auto refilling of prescriptions
- free delivery
“Stop by to input new patient information, transfer prescriptions or just meet the staff,” Pellett said.
The pharmacy doesn’t sell over the counter medicines, but can assist and advise the public on purchasing the right product, she said.
“However we don’t sell them through the pharmacy,” Pellett said.
The Iola Pharmacy Group is the owner of the pharmacy.
“They’ve been a retail pharmacy for over 40 years,” she said. “We are the only independent pharmacy in Bourbon County.”
The pharmacy has a lease agreement with Price Chopper, she said.
“We are excited to launch our business, “Pellett said. “We’ll be in the Good Ol’Days parade (to let people know they are in business).
