About Us

The Pill Box Pharmacy has turned out to be a community-driven business. Its mission was to help get medications out to its patients as quickly and efficiently as possible, while taking the time to really care for each patient. The community has wrapped their arms around the pharmacy and helped it grow and reach more and more people and make it easier for people to get their medications closer to home. With the growth, the pharmacy is able to give back even more. Not only is the pharmacy involved with community improvement organizations, such as Central Louisiana Chamber of Commerce, Young Professionals Group of Central Louisiana, National Federation of Independent Businesses, The Junior League of Alexandria, and FIT Cenla, the pharmacy also gives back to the community in terms of time and money. The staff has been involved in a variety of services, such as serving hot meals on holidays, helping to provide coats for children in the winter, helping to educate on the importance of safety (especially with medications), sponsoring ads to help support our local schools, and assisting with the Rapides Parish Senior Citizens Fair Day. The pharmacy is giving back in many different ways to many different groups all across our community in efforts to give back to those that are supporting our local business.

PillBoxPharmacyAboutUs2The Pill Box Pharmacy has been in existence, although with different names, since June of 2007. Within the first year, the pharmacy moved to an expanded location within the Pavilion Plaza Shopping Center that included a drive-thru window. While the pharmacy has increased their team, their products, and their services through the years, it continues to be a place where you are treated like a neighbor and called by name.

In the fall of 2010, the second location was added to Third St. The Third st location was quickly embraced by the local community and continues to grow because of its neighborly vibe. The staff has really grown to know and care for their neighbors and usually greets you by name as you walk through the door!

Purchased by The Pill Box Pharmacy owners in 2012, the abandoned Greyhound station on Bolton Avenue is being renovated into the third location for the pharmacy. The building was originally built in 1958 and thanks to the help of historic preservation consultants; it is now listed in the National Register of Historic Places by the National Park Service. It will be open July of 2013, and it is our hope to offer much needed pharmacy services in not only the Levin St area, but to customers of the Garden district and downtown areas!
