Tobin’s Pharmacy was founded in 1913 by Frank Tobin, a registered pharmacist, in downtown Burlington, Wisconsin. Mr. Tobin sold his store in 1951 to Leonard Gums who in turn sold it to Don Schultz and Art McCourt in 1962. Don, an astute businessman, eventually expanded the small corner drug store into a chain of six stores throughout Southeastern Wisconsin.
For 25 years, Tobin’s was located at 201 N. Fowler Street in Oconomowoc. In April of 2006, Doug and Dave relocated the store to its current 22,000 s.f. location on Brown Street. The building was designed and built specifically for Tobin’s, which employs 48 people, including Doug’s wife, Ruth, also a pharmacist and clinical nutritionist, and Dave’s wife, Shirley, who serves as a buyer for the store’s children and gift departments.
In December 2013, Tobin’s celebrated its 100th anniversary. The business has succeeded because we work long hours, we provide quality products at a fair price and we treat customers and patients like friends and family.
