When it comes to something as important as the medication you rely on, it’s comforting to know the people who are handling it.

Lincoln Parkway Pharmacy is owned by Patrick Huff and David Bowmen who also own pharmacies in Liberty and Franklin. The pharmacy opened in July 2010; they pride themselves on being part of this community.

More than filling prescriptions, Lincoln Parkway Pharmacy carries a wide selection of home care products and durable medical equipment. They also offer immunizations.

If you can’t make it to town, they also offer free home delivery.

“During our business hours we turn off the automated system so that there is always a person answering the phone.” Pharmacy Technician, Tephannie White, said.

White added that they also have an app available for those that are interested in a more modern approach to their pharmaceutical needs.

Cleve Salyer, pharmacist, said that all the technicians are LaRue county residents. Salyer, who worked for Pamida Pharmacy, said in the time he’s worked in LaRue County he really feels like he’s gotten to know the people of the community.

“I probably know more people here in this community than where I live,” Salyer said.

“We like to employ high school students that are in sports and other activities,” White said, “they often have erratic schedules and it’s hard for them to find a job that would beflexible.”

White said that the owners have also shown support of the community in sponsoring different sports teams, which is important to White who is also a mother.

“Customers like to see familiar faces, it makes them feel more at ease.” Salyer said, “Knowing our customers well helps us provide them with personalized service.”
