Our Story

We’ve been family-owned & operated since disco was all the rage. And while a lot’s changed since then, our core mission hasn’t – we want you to choose love, shine bright and be well. Today. Tomorrow. For Life.

Why Choose Mullins Pharmacy & WeCare Wellness?

  • We care about what’s going into your meds — and into your head.
  • We care about how you’re eating and sleeping. How you’re healing and feeling… About yourself. About your family. About your friends. About the future.
  • We care, because you’ve got blood sugar to manage — and a business to run.
  • We care, because your little girl’s getting married — and you’re gonna walk her down the aisle. In your custom orthopedic shoes. With circulation-boosting socks. Yes, sir.

We care, because it’s our job. Our calling. And our promise.

Our Heritage

In 1972, Jimmy Mullins and his wife, Glenda, moved to Lynn Haven with their three boys–Ken, Brad & Matt–and opened Mullins Pharmicenter. The pharmacy was a traditional independent shop offering prescriptions, compounding, sundries, flowers & gifts.

In 1998, we became the new owners of the family business. Mullins Pharmacy was renovated in 2010 and has grown into a health & wellness destination with an emphasis on education, prevention & compounding.

While our products & services have changed a bit over the past 44 years, our values haven’t.

Small town values are what we stand for. Knowing your neighbor, working for a better America, giving more than you take and raising your children to be productive, caring people.

If you value professional excellence coupled with a big heart for helping people, you’re going to love our pharmacy.

Hope to see you soon,
Ken & DeAnn Mullins

Here’s the first thing you oughta know:
I am devoted to keeping you well —
by inspiring, educating + fighting for patients,
and empowering real people to care for themselves.

Here’s the second thing you oughta know:
I became a pharmacist, nearly by accident.

Though looking back at my life, it’s hardly a surprise.
When my brother was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, the hospital gave us a glossy brochure, and a pat on the back. We had no idea what was happening in this little boy’s body — let alone how to manage his diet + lifestyle, to keep him alive. It was a frustrating, awkward + frightening time. I was sixteen years old. And I wasn’t impressed.

I grew up. And so did my brother. I found myself working in corporate marketing, but longed to discover my real vocation — as a no-nonsense interpreter, advocate + role model for wellness + joy. And wouldn’t you know it, I found it. First — at Samford University’s McWhorter School of Pharmacy. And then — at the family-owned business my father-in-law had opened with love, back in ‘72. You guessed it — Mullins.

My husband + I have owned Mullins Pharmacy for the past 18 years, and in this small-town shop with an independent spirit, we’ve found our true calling.

I’ve also found challenges + creative adventures outside our local business — as a diabetes care columnist for Retail Pharmacy Management magazine, reaching 120,000 readers each month, as a board member & President-elect for the National Community Pharmacists Association, and through two years of service on the Florida Board of Pharmacy.

As the creator of WeCare — a diabetes wellness + education program, based right here in our pharmacy — I’ve been recognized, honored + showered with praise, in flattering ways. National awards. A nod, from the governor. Speaking gigs. And other ego-boosters.

But what really + truly fuels my work are the handwritten love notes that come into the shop. Letters from patients, neighbors + friends. Words like, “Thank you for making all the difference” and “Because of your help, my diabetes is under control.”

Call me a softie, but that’s all I needed.

So, what’s next for this southern gal and her state-of-the-art compounding lab?
A whole lot, and then some. Healthcare in this country is reaching a crisis point, and we’ve got to fight for our right to affordable medicine, education + preventive care. I’m on the frontlines — both in the shop, and in legislative talks — to keep independent pharmacies alive, and kickin’.

Because small deeds make big waves — and big waves change history.

Wishing you love & miracles,

DeAnn
