About Us - Our History
Morganton Drug is a small apothecary-type pharmacy in Morganton, NC. Pharmacists John David Hood and Tom Digh opened Morganton Drug in January of 1981 with one pharmacy technician, Yvonne Robinson. It eventually grew to include other full-time and part-time employees. The store was known as The Apothecary Shoppe doing business as Morganton Drugstore, and the building was located at 107 Avery Avenue, the current location of CVS.
Community Pharmacy merged with Apothecary Shoppe in 1983. In 1992, Pharmacist Karen Adams purchased pharmacy ownership from John David, and in 1994, from Tom. In August 2011, ownership changed to pharmacists/partners Allan Propst, Gary Harden and Mark Brooks, and at this time the store name changed to Morganton Drug, Inc. In January 2013, Josh Haney purchased pharmacy ownership and became a partner in the store. Each pharmacist has delivered exceptional customer service and professionalism to Cleveland, Gaston and Rutherford counties and the surrounding areas for 25 years.
In March 2013, Morganton Drug moved to its newly purchased location on 500 S. Sterling Street in Morganton. We are happy to serve you at our new, more convenient location!

"Providing excellent patient care is the main priority here at Morganton Drug."
Immunization is one of the most significant public health achievements of the 20th century. Vaccines have eradicated smallpox and significantly reduced the number of cases of pneumonia, measles, mumps, rubella, diphtheria, and flu-related illnesses. Yet despite these efforts, people in the U.S. still die from these and other vaccine-preventable diseases - and influenza is the 6th leading cause of death among American adults.
Stay up-to-date on the recommended vaccines that protect you, your family, friends and co-workers from serious, life-threatening infections. You can take comfort in the fact that we have certified, knowledgeable pharmacists to administer vaccinations safely and comfortably.
We offer vaccines for the flu and shingles. Call us for more information, or stop in today to receive your immunization!
