April 17th, 2017 by fruthpharmacy

Point Pleasant, W.Va. (January 11, 2017) – Fruth Pharmacy is pleased to announce that McCloud Family Pharmacy joined the Fruth Pharmacy chain on December 9th.


“This was a good acquisition for Fruth as one family owned pharmacy will be joining another family owned pharmacy chain,” stated Lynne Fruth, President of Fruth Pharmacy.

McCloud’s Pharmacy will mark the 30th location in the Fruth Chain.  It will officially be numbered 28 due to the type of services this pharmacy will provide.

Fruth Pharmacy remodeled the store over the weekend of December 9th.  The store opened on Monday, December 12th.  A grand opening celebration with a ribbon cutting was held on Monday, December 19th.

Jeff and Kevin McCloud along with their great technician support staff will continue to serve the patients of the Lavalette area.  Kevin McCloud, registered pharmacist, started the pharmacy about 10 years ago and was later joined by his brother Jeff, also a registered pharmacist.

Fruth Pharmacy plans to expand the products and services offered at this location.  Fruth Pharmacy offers a rewards card for both store and pharmacy items.  Fruth also has other services such as immunizations, home delivery, specially created gift baskets, and more.

“I am thrilled to be welcoming the McCloud Family to Fruth Pharmacy.  The McCloud brothers have built up a great business and have provided personal care to patients in the local area.  The sale of their business to Fruth Pharmacy will allow both more time to concentrate on patient care, instead of the day-to-day workings of operating a business,” Fruth added about the acquisition.

To contact the friendly staff at Lavalette, please call 304-522-6090.  Store hours will be: Monday – Friday, 9:00 am – 7:00 pm, Saturday, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm, and Sunday, 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm.

Fruth Pharmacy is a family owned company with 30 stores in West Virginia, Ohio, and Kentucky. To learn more about Fruth Pharmacy, please visit our website at
