Key Drugs is a family tradition and is the oldest drug store in Butler County. It is one of the first drug stores in Missouri to be located in a shopping center.

Our knowledgeable pharmacists use their vast experience to provide quality service. Our large staff allows us to fill prescriptions quickly and give all of our customers the personalized care they appreciate and deserve. Why wait in line and be just a number, when you can get prompt personalized service from pharmacists that know your name and treat you like a friend and a neighbor? We offer free in-town delivery and accept all Medicare Part D plans and most insurances.

To assist you with one-stop shopping, Key Drugs has a U.S. Post Office inside the store to handle all of your postal needs. We carry a large inventory of home medical equipment and ostomy supplies. If you have Medicare and a supplemental insurance, Key Drugs can usually supply your Diabetes Supplies to you at no cost.

We have a compounding laboratory at our Key Drugs midtown location, enabling us to make customized medications for our patients. We specialize in Natural Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy for Women and Men. According to Marty, “Compounding a prescription for a patient who has not been able to take the manufactured dosage form, is most rewarding. People have been very grateful to us for helping them with their medication problems.”
