Marshall and Alberta Davis purchased the previously operated Keller Drugs in June of 1981 and thus began the Davis Drugs legacy. Together with 2 or 3 employees, we set out to provide the best possible Pharmacy services in the area. The Davis’s and their staff now include 4 pharmacists and 30 employees (one of those first employees, Margaret, is still on the schedule).

Over the years, Davis Drugs has strived to stay current with the technology and service. In 1984, pharmacy computer automation was added to help maintain patient profiles, medication inventory, and help with insurance billing.

In the late 1990’s, Marshall Davis received certification in immunization to provide this convenient option of having immunizations administered in the pharmacy setting.

Davis Drugs added a drive-thru window in the early 2000’s for the convenience of patients. As an added convenience and for homebound patients, Davis Drugs has maintained a delivery service to more easily connect with their patients.

With the growth of the business, pharmacy dispensing automation was added in 2007. The automated dispensing system helps maintain efficiency and accuracy in the pharmacy department. Our biggest asset is our talented staff, we encourage you to stop in and see for yourself. We know you will be happy with our service, selection, and will want to let us be your pharmacy.

Davis Drugs’ desire is to provide the best possible pharmacy service and outcomes in the Paducah and surrounding area. We value your trust in us and appreciate your patronage.
