Our History

Stuart Ellis Pharmacy has been in business for over half a century. The store was run by Eugene Peycha for more than 36 years, and then his daughter Lesley Paul. In 2013 Chad Edwards purchased the pharmacy and continues the pharmacy's commitment to providing efficient and knowledgeable service as well as having an empathetic attitude towards their patients.

Our original store housed a soda fountain and the pharmacists made the prescriptions from scratch. While we don't mix any sodas today, we still make some medications by hand. For patients who can't find the drug, strength or dosage form that's right for them, our pharmacists can work together with their physician to make a product that is unique and individualized.

It is our mission to provide the highest quality prescription products coupled with education and individualized care to meet each patient’s healthcare needs and improve their quality of life. We are dedicated to caring for our patients as individuals.
