About Us

The beginnings of Lumber City Drugs can be traced back to 1975 when Lawrence A. Smith, Jr. opened the drug store on Main Street right here in Lumber City, Georgia. Larry served the customers at that location for 13 years before he built a new pharmacy right on 341 still in Lumber City. He continued to serve the residents of Lumber City and surrounding counties until the summer of 2018 when Larry finally decided to retire. In the months prior to this, he had searched for an individual whom he thought would fit at the pharmacy and strive to continue serving the patients just as he had for 43 years. In June of 2018, Dr. Kolby Brown purchased and became the new owner of Lumber City Drugs. Unknowing to Larry, Kolby had been dreaming of buying Lumber City Drugs since he was 12 years old. Kolby is a resident of Jeff Davis County and has numerous family members who lived right here in Lumber City, Georgia. So needless to say, Lumber City just feels like home. Kolby and pharmacy technician, Denise Summerlin, long time employee of Lumber City drugs and resident of Lumber City, can be seen in Lumber City Drugs on a daily basis treating customers with respect and kindness and scooping the occasional Blue Bell Ice Cream.
