HUNTINGDON (September 26) — After 54 years, the Tucker family has sold the family-owned pharmacy. Tim Tucker, Pharm.D. sold the pharmacy to Daniel Jones, a pharmacist, who owns two pharmacies in Paducah, one in Murray, and on October 4, City Drug Company in Huntingdon.
With the transition brings the retirement of Marge Tucker, the matriarch of the family, who has served as a bookkeeper since the Tuckers purchased the business in November 1965. She and her late husband, Leon, purchased it along with Maurice Eldridge. Then Leon and Marge purchased the remainder in 1984 and sold to their pharmacist sons, Tony and Tim, in 1990. Tim purchased Tony’s shares in 2010.
Jones said Tim Tucker will remain as the managing pharmacist and much will remain unchanged in the operation. He said he was impressed with the community and the staff of the pharmacy. The name of the pharmacy in Huntingdon will remain unchanged; the other store names are Strawberry Hills in Paducah and Walter’s in Murray.
Jones, 42, a native of Mayfield, and wife, Jamie, a native of Dickson, have three children: Annie, Lucy and Waylon.
Marge said she enjoyed her years at the pharmacy and her volunteer service work at First Baptist Church and various other organizations. She reared three sons and proudly brags about her six grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. She plans to continue teaching Sunday school, Bible drill and sing in the choir.
