Albert County Pharmacy was first opened as a drug store in 1983. The original building was a grocery store that burnt and was rebuilt again in 1974, where it remained as a grocery store until 1983. The pharmacy was acquired by its current owner, Charles Beaver, in 2009, and has been proudly serving the communities from Hillsborough to Riverside Albert to Alma and everywhere in between ever since! Our pharmacists have a passion for pharmacy and the communities we serve. We love knowing and helping our patients and making a difference in people’s lives. Our pharmacy and front store staff love working with the public, and we really take pride in the way the store looks so you will have the best possible shopping experience!
