Local, independent Medicine Center Pharmacy adds Dartmouth Pharmacy

CANTON – After 63 years as an independent and locally owned business, Dartmouth Pharmacy has closed and been sold to Medicine Center Pharmacy.

Pharmacists David Amato and Mark Coberly are retiring and opted to sell the Dartmouth Pharmacy business, at 2801 Tuscarawas St. W, to another independent pharmacy, as opposed to a large national chain. Customers will visit the Medicine Center Pharmacy a couple of blocks east at 2526 Tuscarawas St. W.

The move ensures that longtime Dartmouth Pharmacy customers will continue to receive personal service — such as free local delivery, point of care testing, vaccines and easy dose packaging — from a local, independent pharmacy.

“We’re looking forward to caring for the Dartmouth family of customers the same way they’ve been cared for over the past 63 years,” said Nancy Wharmby, president of Medicine Center Pharmacy.
