1. We are family-owned and operated by a 3rd generation pharmacist.

Since 1957, our independent pharmacy has served Mason City and the surrounding communities with a reputation for cutting-edge treatments and quality customer service. Hillary Houck Lunning began learning alongside her grandfather and father before completing her education and now operating the business as a third-generation pharmacist. She continues the overall spirit and mission of the family business– to always put the needs of the patient first and help them reach their long-term health goals.

2. We have a convenient location and community-focused care.

Our location on Monroe Avenue is ideal for picking up your prescriptions. Whether you come inside or go through the drive-thru, getting your prescriptions quickly has never been easier. What’s more, you’ll be greeted by name and with a smile - we love getting to know our fellow community members and pride ourselves on treating you like another member of our family.

3. We offer top-notch supplements and methylated vitamins.


You can shop supplements online, and the best part is that you don’t have to live in Mason City or even the great state of Iowa- we ship to all 50 states! Don’t like to shop online but still want to have your supplements delivered? Give us a call and ask for Jen! We like talking with our patients so you won’t deal with an annoying call menu. Jen can help you place an order over the phone in minutes!

4. We listen to our customer’s needs.

You are welcome to schedule a wellness consultation with our expert team of pharmacists. We offer various types of consults, from reviewing your medication list to simply listening to your concerns. We have experience with gut health and nutritional areas of health, bioidentical hormone therapy for men, as well as women’s health and hormones.

5. We provide real solutions, not just bandaids.

Yes, we sell bandaids (and all kinds of first aid supplies), but when it comes to those underlying conditions, many products and drugs don’t solve the root problem but rather mask your symptoms. Our team can help you get back to feeling your best with personalized solutions to your specific health needs through consultations, compounded medications, and other specialty prescriptions.

Learn more about our pharmacy services, and let us know how we can best serve you and your family. We look forward to helping you live your healthiest and happiest life!
