In 1904, at the age of 22, A.J. Hartig opened his first drugstore in his native Dubuque on the corner of 1st and Locust streets. Hartig Drug continued growing through the early twentieth century by expanding the product line and winning over the Dubuque community.
Hartig Drug was an innovative company from the beginning, introducing such breakthroughs as the conversion from all over-the-counter shopping to “self-service,” with non-prescription items moved onto shelves throughout the store. Today, Hartig Drug represents the state-of-the-art in filling prescriptions over the internet and through our popular full-service digital-photo department.
At Hartig Drug, we are proud of our rich history and the affiliation we have with each of the communities in which we operate.
