GRANTSBORO — Pamlico Pharmacy officially became Realo Drugs on Monday, April 3. With 19 locations throughout North Carolina, Realo Drugs is a locally-owned community pharmacy dedicated to exceptional customer care with a friendly staff that treats customers like family. 

Owned by Joey and Tammy McLaughlin, Realo Drugs began in 1982. As part of this ownership transition, the pharmacy, which is located on Hwy. 55 in Grantsboro, will remain open but will undergo an extensive remodeling project in order to offer customers improved pharmacy services, such as immunizations, blister packaging, compounding, and clinical services.

“We are very excited to also begin serving our new friends in Pamlico County this spring,” said Joey McLaughlin. “While we are making some big changes to your community pharmacy, we hope you’ll excuse our mess because we promise you’ll be pleased with the updates once we’re done! However, rest assured that many things will remain quite familiar, like the same smiling faces you’re used to seeing, local delivery, and the gift shop.”

The pharmacy’s beloved gift shop is going to be rebranded as Pamlico Gifts, and will continue to operate under the ownership and management of Chris Dixon.
