Martz and Shapley Hometown PharmacyMartz and Shapley Hometown Pharmacy
The concept behind HomeTown Pharmacy Inc. developed from a simple desire:
Bring together the personalized service of independently owned community
pharmacies with the bargaining power and efficiencies of a larger corporation.
As second-generation pharmacists, the founders Tim and Fred Grice, Jr, both
started out working for a national drug store chain upon graduation from college.
They each moved on to purchase their own independent pharmacy, with the
help and support of their father. Both brothers came to realize the necessity of
growth for future survival and the importance of patient driven community pharmacy.
In 1996, after much planning, they purchased Gobles Pharmacy in Gobles,
Michigan and thus HomeTown Pharmacy was born. Today, HomeTown
Pharmacy operates 28 pharmacies around the state of Michigan to include
retail pharmacy, long-term care pharmacy, compounding pharmacy
and durable medical equipment.
