Welcome to the Guerin's Pharmacy website
Guerin's Pharmacy is located in downtown Summerville, South Carolina. We are the oldest pharmacy in South Carolina having operated as an independent pharmacy since 1871. A pharmacist from Charleston, Dr. Schwettman, moved his business to Summerville during the civil war. Upon returning to Summerville after completing his service to his country, Dr. Henry C. Guerin purchased the Summerville side of the business and Dr. Schwettman returned to Charleston. Dr. Joseph A. Guerin, son of Dr. Henry C. Guerin, took over ownership upon the death of his father. Dr. Herbert F. Dunning worked with Dr. Joseph A. Guerin from whom he purchased the business. Charles H. Dunning, Jr. began working for his uncle and Dr. Joseph A. Guerin at the age of 12. He purchased the business from his uncle's estate in 1975. Today his daughter, Barbara A. Dunning, is the pharmacist in charge and Charles Dunning is semi-retired working part-time.
We pride ourselves on providing the best customer service to our patients and customers.
