Forward Pharmacy, Columbus is located at the former Sharrow’s Downtown, 100 S Ludington St., in the historic four corners of Columbus, WI. Although our pharmacy name is new, the location itself has a rich history. The building has been home to Sharrow’s and Rexall Drug since 1855. Forward Pharmacy is proud and honored to carry on the tradition of quality patient care in this landmark location.
