"We have to figure out new ways to provide the kind of service that we’ve become known for while increasing volume and creative services. We monitor the complete menu and evolution of patient services. We’re always listening and watching, but we’re also involved by giving input and providing guidance.” says Garry Moreland, Pharmacist/Owner.
It’s that kind of mentality – one that is grounded and focused on the community in which one operates – that has fueled Moreland and Devitt’s success for over 50 years.
The original Moreland & Devitt location is located in the rural community of Rushville, Illinois, nestled in a character-rich corner of the town square that dates back to 1834.
Clark Moreland purchased what was Vedder Drug Store in 1955. In 1960, Clark’s brother-in-law, William Devitt, became a business partner and Moreland & Devitt Pharmacy was born!
Moreland and Devitt purchased the adjoining bookstore in 1970 and underwent a drastic remodel to double the pharmacy’s square footage into the space you see today. In the 1980's, the business transferred to the children and current owners, Garry Moreland, Jim Devitt, and Marsha Bartlett.
In October of 2011 launched a remote dispensing pharmacy that serves the community of Virginia, IL and it's surrounding communities. In December of 2013 M&D purchased another long standing family pharmacy, O'Neil's Pharmacy in Mt. Sterling and in October of 2015 M&D built a brand new pharmacy in the City of Beardstown.
