Swisher and Lohse Pharmacy Pomeroy, Ohio

Pharmacy Pomeroy, Ohio

Swisher and Lohse has been Pomeroy, Ohio’s favorite locally owned pharmacy for 70 years.

Humble Beginnings: Harold Lohse and Wayne Swisher both graduated from Middleport High School together in 1932 and then from Ohio State University School of Pharmacy in 1937. After the war, Lohse was working at a drug store in Shelby, Ohio, while Swisher worked at the TNT plant in Point Pleasant, WV. When Lohse came home nearly every weekend, he would get together with Swisher and talk about buying or starting a drug store. In 1946, Swisher and Lohse Pharmacy opened their first pharmacy together on the upper block where Mayer’s Bakery used to be with Mr. Swisher, Mr. Lohse and one clerk. The drug store was a huge success, running out of inventory the first day.

Edward J Zatta, RPH, purchased the company on November 10, 2007. Ed is the managing partner. He has been involved in independent pharmacy since graduating from Ohio Northern University in 1988.

Swisher & Lohse Pharmacy offers a full range of pharmacy services including prescription medications including generics, over the counter medications and a variety of treatment and therapy options to best meet your preferences.

Since cost and value are important to all of us, we will work with your insurance plan and physician to find the lowest cost option whenever possible.
