About Super Thrifty Pharmacy

Gilchrist’s Drug Store was a longtime Rivers establishment, having opened in 1942. In 1975 Joss March and his business partners bought the store from the Gilchrist family. It joined the newly-founded Super Thrifty family of pharmacies in 1977. In 2001, a brand new building was opened, located just down the street from the former store. On the east side of the pharmacy is a specially designed mural featuring a look back to the early years of the town of Rivers.

Not only does Super Thrifty Pharmacy serve Rivers and area’s pharmacy requirements, the store is also a liquor outlet. In 1999 the store became the beer vendor when fire destroyed the Rivers Inn.

Joss March, one of the original founding partners of Super Thrifty, was the first pharmacist/manager/owner when the store opened in 1975 until 1985. Carman Denbow was store manager from 1985 until 1992. John Stanzeleit managed from 1992-1994. Since October 1994 Gary Pomeroy has been pharmacist/manager/owner.
