Join Us For Our 20 Year Anniversary Bash on Saturday, November 16. By Our Student Pharmacist, Barry Shen


November 1 will mark the 20th anniversary of the day Plain City Druggist officially opened. But we plan to celebrate this momentous occasion on Saturday, November 16 with a giant tailgate party in the parking lot.

To commemorate this special occasion, as well as thank everyone in the community for their support, the pharmacy will host a special party for all of our customers.

Background: Plain City Druggist is owned by Joe and Robin Craft who graduated from The Ohio State University’s College of Pharmacy in 1995 and 1999 respectively.

Plain City Druggist originally opened in 1999 as a small store in Lovejoy Plaza in downtown Plain City and later moved to the current location in 2007. At that time, Midwestern Compounding Pharmacy was added to the store providing compounding services for veterinary, dental, dermatological, pediatric, and hormone replacement therapy.

Later in December 2014, Joe and Robin purchased Family Medical Pharmacy on Karl Road and opened up what is now called Happy Druggist. In 2017, they opened their third location also called Happy Druggist in West Jefferson.

Event: The main feature of the event will be The Ohio State University vs. Rutgers University football game which will be broadcast on several big screen televisions in the parking lot. Tents will be set up with various activities and food. Individuals of all ages are welcome. There will be face painting, football, cornhole, and hot chocolate for the kids. There will also be raffle prizes.

The party will get started one hour before kickoff as the time for the game has not officially been announced yet.

Owners: Robin Craft, “I can’t believe that 20 years have passed since we opened the store in 1999. That first week, we passed out candy to trick-or-treaters, re-stickered every item on the OTC shelves, because the cost stickers were wrong, and wondered what we had gotten ourselves into. It was crazy, scary, and a bit overwhelming. Thankfully, we were young and energetic and Joe could talk to anyone. Now twenty years later, we are so grateful to the Plain City community for being so kind to us and supporting us all these years.”

Joe Craft, “I kept telling myself I wasn’t afraid over and over. But Yoda had it right in The Empire Strikes Back, when he said,’You will be!'”

Store manager and pharmacist: Taylor Yutzy, “The fact that Plain City Druggist is still thriving after 20 years is a testament to the vision and determination of Joe and Robin Craft!”

Pharmacy Technician: Phil McDowell, “I am excited that Plain City Druggist has been positively influencing the area for two decades! Glad we have had the opportunity to serve the Plain City community for 20 years!”
