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.

New Name, Familiar Faces

Our pharmacy team has served the Columbus area for decades. Randolph native Michelle Dreger will manage the store, while Nick Sharrow will return to staff the store on some weekends. Ryan Bender, our clinical director, worked for many years in the nearby town of Rio, Wisconsin. They look forward to serving the community again!
