David Lorenzo opened Lorenzo Apothecary in October 2017. David wanted to provide a pharmacy that was there for the customer. He wanted to provide service to the customer without hassle and service that was friendly and without a long wait. Lorenzo also wanted to provide other options for customers than what is currently available such as bioidentical hormonal compounds.
David enjoys being able to greet the customers as they enter the store and offering the best service possible and he wants to provide customers with the best possible price in town.
David was born and raised in Sterling. He became a registered pharmacist in 1994. He is proud to have had this opportunity to have the vision, design and open this pharmacy and to be the first accredited UCAP / NABP compounding pharmacy in northeast Colorado.
This pharmacy is set apart from the other local pharmacies because of their USP800, PCCA-accredited compounding labs. They are the only compounding pharmacy in the northeast Colorado area that offer nonsterile hazardous and nonsterile compounds.
Lorenzo Apothecary doesn’t only focus on the usual over-the-counter medicinal items, they also offer:
- Jelly Belly jelly beans. They offer over 20 varieties of jelly beans that you can purchase in bulk, in single flavors or mix.
- Chukar Cherries from Washington state that includes nuts and cherries, salsa, pie filling, and desert sauces.
- Jelly Cat stuffed animals that are plush and huggable.
- L’Occitane creams and lotions from France.
- Paddy Wax soy candles that have unique scents.
- Locally handmade goat soaps.
- Functional Remedies CBD tinctures, capsules, and salves. They are also able to make gummies and dog biscuits with the CBD oil.
- Medi compression stockings and garments that are measured to order.
- Plantar fasciitis stockings.
- Wish Garden herbal supplements.
- Doterra essential oils.
- Hormonal kits
- Free delivery of in-town prescriptions and only $1 for out-of-town deliveries to Fleming, Haxtun, Holyoke, Yuma, Otis, and Akron.
Their staff is friendly and eager to help in any way they can. If there is an item that is not currently available, they can usually get it by the next day. Even if there are items they do not usually carry, they will be happy to order it for the customer.
It has truly been exciting to see how much Lorenzo Apothecary has grown just in the two-plus years that they have been open. They have been able to add another pharmacist and support staff because of this growth, as well as the staff that have been with them since day one.
They want to thank their customers for their support in helping them on their continuing growth.
Join us in congratulating
as the Chamber of Commerce’s Business of the Week.
