Ritzman Pharmacy settles into new headquarters


GRANGER TWP. — Ritzman Pharmacy’s corporate team is now under one roof.

On Friday, the pharmaceutical retailer’s headquarters officially moved into Akron-Medina Corporate Park I, 1065 Medina Road, Suite 300.

“We went from three separate offices to one,” spokeswoman Christina Cyrus said.

Ritzman’s corporate office previously was on Hartman Road in Wadsworth, with a distribution center on Copley Road and its Med Dose packaging services on Gilchrist Road, both in Akron.

“This will allow us to better serve our patients and better serve our community with the workflow and operations under one roof,” Cyrus said.

Ritzman Pharmacy has been in Medina County since its first retail space opened at 120 High St., Wadsworth, in 1950.

Cyrus said its former 8,400-square-foot corporate office in Wadsworth opened in the mid-1980s. Its new space in Granger Township is 13,500 square feet.

“Our primary goal is to do what’s best to serve our patients and our community,” she said.

The corporation has about 60 employees at its headquarters and a total of 250 employees at its retail locations.

Ritzman Pharmacy has more than 20 pharmacies across eight counties in Ashland, Holmes, Medina, Portage, Stark, Summit, Tuscarawas and Wayne counties.

Cyrus said half of its locations are in Buehler’s Fresh Foods stores with the remaining being free-standing.

The other Medina County locations are:

  •  Ritzman Pharmacy, 255 Center St., Seville;
  •  Forest Meadows Buehler’s Fresh Foods, 275 Forest Meadows Drive, Medina;
  •  River Styx Buehler’s Fresh Foods, 3626 Medina Road, Montville Township.
