Collinsville Family Pharmacy

Pharmacists: Tharyn Nachtigall & Sherri Clark

Collinsville's Family Pharmacy filled their millionth new prescription Thursday morning April 3, 2008 (and that doesn't count refills). Long-time pharmacy customer, Pauline Scott (above left), helped the pharmacy reach that milestone when Tharyn Nachtigall filled her latest prescription. This count started at zero with a new computer system started in about 1981. Before that, prescriptions were counted with three different manual counter stamps. Tharyn started his pharmacy career with Doyne Wolf at the Collinsville Rexall Drug Store in 1972. The current Family Pharmacy facility at 12th & Main was opened in 1988.
Just a few of the current Collinsville Family Pharmacy staff L-R: Nell Brown, KellyBrannen, Joan Salisbury, Tharyn Nachtigall and Beth Davis. [Not pictured: Sherri Clark, Kristi Gates, and 2 part time CHS students: Tara Inbody and Kyle Rush.]
And Thank you to Nell Brown for the top photo as I arrived too late a photo of the millionth event. -- Ted
This 1959 news photo shows four of the many Collinsville pharmacists that covered the years before Tharyn started the most recent 1 million count. They were L-R: Spurgent Bryant, Shorty Maxwell, Rusty Howland and Doyne Wolf. Also mentioned in the article was Jim Keith who was a partner in the Bryant-Keith Drug store for 13 years before 1923 when the Bryant Rexall Drug Store was started.
