A long legacy of quality care

We are proud of our longstanding legacy of quality care. When Ritzman Pharmacy was first established by Forrest Ritzman in 1950, it offered the standard drugstore fare of its time, including a soda fountain and lunch counter. Forrest Ritzman welcomed each customer by name and knew each and every one of their healthcare histories.

Today, our pharmacists are the first faces you see when you come into our pharmacy locations. They welcome you, discuss your healthcare questions and offer personalized care to meet your needs. Ritzman Pharmacy has evolved into a community institution offering modernized care, while still staying true to our humble Ohio roots.

Our pharmacy is much more than just a drug store — it is a place where everyone is treated as an individual. It is a place to learn, a place to gather, and a place to expect care beyond the prescription.

When you enter our doors, you will experience the same personalized service you would expect from a 1950’s soda shop, with all of the conveniences of a modern pharmacy.
