Airline Drug to Louis & Clark to Skip & Clark

Today, we provide professional pharmacy and compounding services, medical equipment, independent-living services and health care programs.
People often ask us about our name. In 1963 by Louis and Clark (their real names) graduated pharmacy college and immediately bought a pharmacy in Chicopee. Originally named Airline Drug, customers often commented on the opportune names of the partners – Louis & Clark. Pretty quickly, the two founders renamed the company after the famous explorers, albeit with a different spelling.
Louis retired and Clark's son, Skip, is now responsible for the direction of the company. We considered changing the name to Skip & Clark. Briefly. Of course, the legacy of Louis & Clark is more than a name. It's a dedication to service and innovation.
Today's health care is a very fluid marketplace. For 50 years, we've built our reputation by continually adapting to the needs of our customers. No matter how the regulations change, we will always try and help preserve a patient's independence and quality of life. Louis & Clark will always be here to help you take care of yourself.
