Our Promise

"Our professional staff are committed to providing you with the best service possible. That means not only providing prompt, professional attention, but the individual time you need to understand your medication and how it works. We also value patient confidentiality and respect your need for privacy. That’s why we have private patient consulting rooms. If you need an over the counter medication, sick room or first aid supplies, let our knowledgeable staff assist you in selecting the product that best meets your needs. Any products we don’t have on the shelf or those hard- to-find old-time favorites can be special ordered at no extra cost and our convenient drive-through window can make those really hectic days just a little bit easier. At Smith’s Drugs of Forest City, we know about old-fashioned customer service; we’ve been providing it since 1939!"
