Schroeder Drugs at the corner of Second and Elm streets in Downtown Washington will hold a 90th anniversary celebration this Friday, Oct. 13, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The celebration will include a chance to win a 50-inch smart TV, free refreshments, free giveaways and flu shots.

No appointments are needed to get a flu shot. Walk-ins are welcome.

Schroeder Drugs was established in 1927 by Edwin L. and Florence M. Schroeder, who purchased the Baumann Drug Store at the same location, renaming it Schroeder Drugs.

In 1989, the store was purchased from the Schroeder family by pharmacists Paul Mozgola, Lawrence Weidle and William Verdine.

Current owners are a father and son team from South St. Louis County, Larry and Mike McIntosh, who purchased Schroder Drugs last year.

Hours for the store are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and closed Sunday.
