Yates Center Pharmacy

In the 1970's the original pharmacy burned down, leaving a bare vacant lot on the south corner of the square.  Later, Jay Atkin, RpH, purchased the pharmacy.  This is a photo of the current building. 


Jerry Sedlacek, RpH, purchased the pharmacy in the 1980's, recently selling the store to Randee (Corns) Ruppert, Pharm D, in 2019.
