Topeka Pharmacy was founded in 1988 by Thomas and Morag Miller, pharmacist graduates from Butler University in Indiana. The Millers sought out to be servants of the community. The Millers strived to be servants of the area by meeting the needs of the community whether that be providing excellent healthcare or staying up to date with the newest fabrics and giftware. Throughout their ownership, the couple achieved many awards. The Millers won the 2011 McSoley Pharmacists of the year award through the Indiana Community Pharmacy Alliance. Under their leadership in 2015, Topeka Pharmacy won the Good Neighbor Pharmacy’s Independent Pharmacy of the Year across the country in a nationwide competition. Tom and Morag developed a legacy that has become a cornerstone of the community. Our mission statement is “To promote the health and welfare of our community by providing professional and friendly healthcare services”. Tom and Morag made this a reality by always going the extra mile for anyone and everyone. Tom always liked to say “Always find a way to say yes” with the mentality that even if you cannot succeed in meeting every request, find the next best solution for a positive outcome.
After nearly 30 years of serving the Topeka Community, the Miller family sold the pharmacy to Trevor and Cassie in January of 2018. The Thains graduated from Purdue in 2017 and 2018 respectively. Prior to founding the store, Thomas Miller worked in Goshen at a small independent chain, Judd Drugs. During this time, he mentored Trevor’s father, pharmacist Jeremy Thain. In 2009, Jeremy suggested that Trevor look for work by applying to Topeka Pharmacy. Trevor then spent his summers, vacations from college, and holidays working in the Topeka community alongside Tom and Morag. The years working alongside one another paired with the Miller’s hand-picked staff resulted in a transition that allowed for innovative progress, continuity of the legacy created by the Miller’, and excellent patient care.
As time continues on, Topeka Pharmacy will still strive for excellence and the ability to provide friendly and professional healthcare services to our community. We are excited for you to be part of these new exciting chapters in the story of Topeka Pharmacy. Thanks for your continued support throughout the years, we couldn’t be here without YOU!
