Have a Safe and Happy Fourth of July!


We want to wish everyone a safe and happy Fourth of July. Please remember that the pharmacy will be closed on Thursday to celebrate the holiday.

Don’t forget that festivities will get underway for the holiday at Pastime Park beginning at 12 pm. There will be food trucks, games, and bounce houses for the kids.

The parade through Plain City begins at 3 pm with the line up starting at 2 pm. Anyone can be in the parade. If you are interested, you can fill out a parade form by going HERE. Return the form to Ashley McKnight at amcknight@plain-city.com or to Linda Granger at lgranger@plain-city.com. You may also drop off the forms at the municipal building located at 213 S. Chillicothe Street in Plain City.

The Grand Marshal for the parade this year will be the members and coaches of the State Champion Lady Pioneers Softball Team! What a great way to honor these amazing young women and their coaches.

Live music begins at 6 pm in Pastime Park and ends with the Dublin Symphony performing patriotic music during the fireworks which begin at 9:45 pm.

For more information on the July 4th Festivities in Plain City, please visit the village web site HERE.


The Plain City Farmers Market will also return for its 9th Year beginning on July 4 and continuing through October 3. The hours for the Market are 4:30 pm to 7 pm at the corner of South Chillicothe and Main Street. For more information, visit the UPCO Site HERE.

If you have an emergency and need to reach a pharmacist over the holiday weekend, please call the after hours number at 614-873-0020.

We will reopen on Friday, July 5, at 9 am, and will be open regular hours (until 6 pm).

Please have a safe and enjoyable holiday!

Remember: Please keep your pets inside where they will not be scared by the area fireworks. More dogs get lost and escape from their owners at firework events or from backyards at this time of year than any other. The local shelters are inundated by lost pets who are scared by all the loud noises.


Join Happy Druggist for a One Year Anniversary Party on July Fourth After the Northland Community Independence Day Parade.

Mondays can sometimes be a bit stressful, but we can’t wait for Monday, July Fourth. This particular Monday will be filled with fun and laughter and family.

There is so much going on at Happy Druggist on the Fourth of July that we wanted to keep you updated on our plans. We are using the entire holiday to thank you, our customers, for your loyal support over the past year.

To begin the day, we will be participating in the Northland Independence Day parade which will get underway at 11 am near the intersection of Morse and Karl Roads. The parade travels north on Karl Road to the intersection with East Dublin Granville Road (State Route 161). As usual, the parade will feature marching bands, bicycles, floats, and tons of other entries from around the community. The last entry should complete the route around 12:30 pm.


The theme for the parade this year is “Building Our Future Together,” which is exactly what we want to do with you, our patients.

For more information on the parade go to The Northland Community Council page HERE or the Northland Parade page HERE.

Following the parade, we will be setting up in the parking lot of Happy Druggist Pharmacy, 5770 Karl Road, serving hot dogs with all the fixings and ice cold water in appreciation for your support. There will also be a face painter, balloon animals, and water balloon games, as well as other activities for the kids.

As many of you may know, Joe and Robin Craft, both pharmacists, purchased Family Medical Pharmacy in December 2014 from previous owner, Maria Masco. They changed the name to Happy Druggist Pharmacy, because they wanted a positive, sunny image that made people smile when they thought of the pharmacy.

Mark Robbins came on staff at the beginning of 2015 as the pharmacist manager. Mark is a graduate of Westland High School who was born and raised on the west side. His grandmother lived nearby in Sharon Woods, so he is very familiar with the area.

Mark graduated from The Ohio State University’s College of Pharmacy in 2005. He loves giving back to the community and interacting with his patients here at Happy Druggist. His wife, Shelley, and their children, Natalie and Brady, jump right in and help with everything at the store, too. They are Mark’s biggest cheerleaders.

Please stop by and help Happy Druggist celebrate one year in the community. If you don’t know us, we’d love to meet you. And if you are a loyal customer, we want to say THANK YOU!!

Get Ready For a Parade!

Parade Season is quickly approaching in Plain City. Although, we missed the Memorial Day parade (we were not as fearless as many of the baseball teams and Lions Club members who braved the rain), we will be participating in the Fourth of July Parade on Sunday, July 4 beginning at 3:30 pm and in the Steam Threshers Parade on Friday, July 16 beginning at 6pm. For a complete calendar of Plain City events, including parade information, visit the Village of Plain City web site: Plain City Event Calendar

As most of you know, we are really creative with the “goods” we throw in the parades. From beads (hey, is it Mardi Gras?) to balls and tons of candy, Plain City Druggist delivers the best stuff to our loyal customers.

Plain City Druggist staff and family after an arduous afternoon pitching candy to the crowds. We have our "throwing arms" rested for this year's parades.

It was our former delivery driver, Paul Carpenter, who first started us on the parade route. He was also the person who suggested we bag the candy in plastic baggies with our business card inside so people would know the candy was safe to eat and who had passed it out. Paul also feared for the safety of the kids running into the streets to pick up individual pieces of candy. The baggies eliminated that worry.

The baggie idea has evolved some. Check out the business cards inside. They offer special coupons for parade attendees. So don’t think the goodie bags are just for the kids. Snatch them away if you can!

This is your warning–get ready. Practice up on your catching skills. Bring trash bags for all the treats you’re going to find falling into your lap. Line the parade route early. And have your umbrella on hand–you know Joe loves using his “super soaker” squirt gun.

Everyone Loves a Parade!
