Supporter Spotlight: Benzer Pharmacy

In 2016, Young’s Pharmacy in Downtown Poteau became Benzer Pharmacy.  After serving the Poteau area for many years, Mr. Larry Young decided to retire to spend more time on his ranch.  That was when the Benzer family stepped in.

From Benzer Pharmacy, you can expect the same high-quality of service that you came to know at Young’s Pharmacy.  They have a real heart for their locations, and an even bigger heart for their customers.  They keep the small-town charm of your local drugstore while at the same time providing services that only the major pharmacy’s can offer.

Benzer Pharmacy in Poteau is located at 219 Dewey Avenue, next door to The Purple Plume.
