Trummel’s Drug turns 40

Generations of Trummel family members were at the Oologah drug store Tuesday to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the pharmacy, which was first opened by founder Ron Trummel on Sept. 15, 1980. In recognition of the occasion, Trummel’s held a drawing for a gift certificate, awarded several door prizes, held special deals throughout the day, and served refreshments for visitors. “We’re very thankful to the Oologah community for their continued support throughout the years,” said Jan Trummel, who purchased the business with husband, Steve, Ron’s son, in 2003.
