The History of Walker’s Drug Store
The year was 1918 to be exact
…and the man behind the namesake is none other than Mr. Walker himself – Theodore A. Walker, Rph. T.A. Walker lived most of his adult life as a leg amputee as a result of a terrible motorcycle accident. Nevertheless, this handicap did not deter T.A. Walker’s aspiration of opening his own independent pharmacy with a greater emphasis on personal service and individual well-being.
After 18 years of faithfully
…adhering to that philosophy, T.A. Walker sold Walker’s Drug Store in 1936 to Herman Klein and Elmer Reeves, Rph.
Walker’s Drug Store was purchased
…by Dan Lemelin and A. Artemes. In the ensuing 29 years, they diligently continued to promote the long-standing belief that people are more important than pennies.
Dan Lemelin's son, Jeff took over
…for Artemes in 1999, and together, father and son would be witness and contributors to the Walker’s tradition as the community around them continued to flourish.
In 2005, Dan Lemelin officially “retired,” after more than 35 years of tirelessly carrying on T.A. Walker’s legacy – a legacy that would be passed down to Nathan Ikner, Rph., that same year.

Things are pretty stressful right now and tensions are running high. Taking a walk might be exactly what you need right now to decrease your stress levels. I've been walking quite a bit lately — maybe you have too. It's more like rambling, really, in the English novel...
Love this store. It's always quick, they're very helpful, and has a pat office located inside. It's a bit pricier than the typical CVS/Walgreen's, but it's worth the little extra.
Judy Clark is terrific--she's ALWAYS helpful with whatever I need!
Service and staff is excellent. They go the extra mile to provide a relational service and they communicate well. Light years ahead of the chains.
Love the personal, caring staff!
