George’s Pharmacy is now open in Versailles at the corner of South and Main streets in the Neal-Weir Plaza, where Gold Star Chili is also located.

The family owned and operated pharmacy is service oriented according to owner George Gillman, who along with his sons, Blake and Trent, offer pharmaceutical needs in three towns: Brookville, Sunman, and now Versailles.

“We pride ourselves on being service oriented,” Gillman told The Versailles Republican on opening day last Wednesday, June 29.

Gillman noted they offer a variety of services including free delivery of prescriptions, honor the $4.00 list of prescriptions, and will match any competitor’s price.

They offer medical equipment with free delivery and set-up in your home. They also have a service that will modify a home or vehicle for someone with medical needs. This could include a handicap ramp or whatever it takes to allow someone to continue to drive. “We want to offer a better quality of life for those who want to stay home as long as possible,” Gillman noted.

Employees at George’s Pharmacy have knowledge of agencies that are able to help those with medical needs.

They offer a variety of gifts, balloons, along with important over the counter medical supplies. They also have their liquor license and offer a variety of beer and liquor. They have a drive-thru for customer’s convenience.

The Versailles store is staffed with Stephanie Back, managing pharmacist; Kristina Pope from Osgood, who is a pharmacy technician; and Teresa Merkel, who is the front-end manager and an RN. She is available to give various shots.
Hours are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. They are closed on Sunday. You can find out more about the new pharmacy by calling 812-689-0200 or online at:

George’s Pharmacy will have a presence at the Ripley County 4-H Fair. They invite you to come to their booth so they can meet the people they want to serve.

The Gillman’s have been in the pharmacy business since 1985 and are excited about their newest opening in Versailles. “We look forward to serving the community here,” Gillman concluded.
