    Towne Pharmacy has been an independent family owned business serving the shoreline area for over 45 years. Towne Pharmacy strives to offer customer service not readily available at most chain Pharmacy stores. The newly renovated store not only services new, refill or transferred prescriptions but has also added a complete line of Durable Medical Equipment and a line of unique gift items. Our newest addition is the Parata Pass 208 Robot Medication Management System. Ask us how we can help you to implement a unit –or multi-dose packaging system to your senior care community or home environment.
