Troy, Kansas – The Doniphan County Chamber of Commerce welcomed new business D.C. Drug in Troy, Kansas, with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday, March 23, during the pharmacy’s Grand Opening celebration.

Nearly 50 family members, friends and local residents attended the grand opening despite the windy weather. Those in attendance toured the renovated pharmacy and were treated to a peanut butter, jelly and milk bar underneath the building’s covered storefront.

Drug serves residents in a 30-mile radius and offers free delivery, free prescription transfers and first-class service to all of their customers.
