Walter's Family Pharmacy
A Division of Strawberry Hills Pharmacy
Serving generations of families one patient at a time.
We’ve been in business in Murray for over 30 years, proudly serving our friends and families of western Kentucky and northwest Tennessee. We are a full-service pharmacy that prides ourselves on going above and beyond our patients’ expectations. We strive to meet the needs of every single one of our patients every day. This goal hasn’t changed since becoming a part of Strawberry Hills Pharmacy in 2012.
Walter Mehr graduated from the Samford School of Pharmacy with a Bachelor’s degree in Pharmacy in 1979, becoming the third generation of the Mehr family to become a pharmacist. After graduation, Mehr landed his first pharmacist job in Ripley, Tenn. at Crain’s Pharmacy. After a year in Ripley, Mehr moved back to Murray to begin working for Byron Forbus at Uncle Jeff’s Discount Pharmacy as one of the three head pharmacists.
Mehr opened his own pharmacy at the Uncle Jeff’s location in 1983, which he renamed Walter’s Pharmacy. In 1987, Walter’s Pharmacy outgrew its location and relocated to a spot in front of the Benson’s Sporting Goods store where it stayed for five years. In 1992, Mehr built his own, new facility and renamed the store Walter’s Family Pharmacy.
In July 2012, Mehr sold the controlling interest in the pharmacy to Daniel Jones, owner of Strawberry Hills Pharmacy & Compounding Center. Mehr continues to work at the pharmacy and loves helping his family of customers he has grown to know over the years.
