Jordan Drug, Inc. was founded in 1975 by Luther and Rosemary Smith both 1970 graduates of the University of Kentucky College of Pharmacy in Lexington, Kentucky. Luther and Rosemary moved to Louisville, Kentucky after graduation where they worked for Walgreens and Super-X respectively. In January of 1975, they moved back to Luther’s hometown of Beattyville, Kentucky and opened their first independent pharmacy.
Luther and Rosemary founded Three Forks Limited Partnership, an institutional pharmacy in 1977. The Smiths were the first closed-door pharmacy in eastern Kentucky to use unit-dose packaging. At one point, Three Forks serviced nursing homes, prisons and Hospice accounts across the state from Pikeville to Paducah. Omnicare bought Three Forks in August of 1996 and still operates a satellite location from Beattyville under their new ownership of CVS/Caremark.
Jordan Drug, Inc. currently operates seven independent pharmacies across eastern Kentucky. The Jordan Drug Family Stores include Village Apothecary and Stufflebean Pharmacy in Beattyville, Owsley Prescription Center in Booneville, Wolfe Prescription Center in Campton, Powell Prescription Center in Clay City, Jackson Apothecary in Jackson, and Clinic Pharmacy in Salyersville.
