PULASKI - The Mount Pulaski Pharmacy will be closing its doors
tonight at 5:30 after 31 years of service to the community.
Pharmacist Brad Aussieker offered his thanks to the community for
their support by saying, "We were here 31 years and we appreciate
everything everybody did to help us out over those 31 years." He
added, "We're gonna miss everybody and if it wasn't for them we
couldn't have been here that long. Unfortunately things come to an
end and this has."
Aussieker is contemplating retirement at this time while the
other employees will be moving on to the Lincoln Walgreens.
"I'm thinking about retirement. I'll see how things go and if I need
to go work I will and if I don't I won't." He offered these other
plans for the future, "I am going to try to enjoy my grandson and my
granddaughter when she's born in January."
Meanwhile pharmacist Dennis Graue will transition to the Lincoln
Walgreens along with pharmacy technicians Debie Bowles and Karen
Bowles had been with the pharmacy since the doors first opened in
November of 1983 and she was also very grateful to the community.
"These past years here at the pharmacy have taught me one thing,
that patience and kindness will make a lot of friends. I have had
joy with so many friends and families and their children, watching
them grow along with mine." She went on to say, "The elderly have
touched my heart in so many ways that I can have ever imagined."

People can go to any Walgreens and still get their records
from there, according to Aussieker, but the Lincoln Walgreens is
where the former Mount Pulaski Pharmacy employees are headed.
