- Deines Pharmacy – Beatrice, NE
Mitch Deines doesn’t sell greeting cards. And he doesn’t have customers…he has patients. For the past 23 years, Deines Pharmacy has applied a clinical approach to pharmacy, with three nurses on staff and a robust durable medical equipment department with a mission of making everyday living easier. This approach has served Mitch and his team well, bringing customers to Beatrice from surrounding cities up to 50 miles away and allowing Deines Pharmacy to thrive in a community with multiple competing independents.
- Harry Race Pharmacy – Sitka, AK
In the remote island community of Sitka, Alaska, living locally is both a challenge and a necessity. And it’s something Dirk and Trish White make a priority, not only as community leaders who wear a number of hats in order to keep Sitka viable, but also as pharmacists who understand their store’s role as an access point for their friends’ and neighbors’ healthcare needs. At Harry Race Pharmacy, Dirk and Trish are making sustainability—and authentically “living local”—a reality.
