OWNERS: Leonard Levi Edloe PharmD
DESCRIPTION: Edloe’s Professional Pharmacies had its origin in the late 1800’s as Eaton’s Pharmacy. Located at 2601 Que Street, the pharmacy was purchased after several ownership changes by Leonard Lacy Edloe in 1945. A native of Staunton, Virginia, and a graduate of the Howard University College of Pharmacy, he operated the pharmacy under the name of Harrington’s Pharmacy. This pharmacy was very unique in that there was no soda fountain. The pharmacy offered free delivery, which was done on bicycle. The pharmacy also became known for the fact that it carried hard-to-find products. In 1970 Leonard Levi Edloe, who had also attended the Howard University College of Pharmacy, joined his father in the practice. It was at this time that the decision to move into a more modern building was made. Plans were slowed down in 1972 with the death of the senior partner. However, in 1974 the pharmacy moved into the East End Medical Center on North 25th Street and the name was changed to Edloe’s Professional Pharmacy. In addition to prescription service, the pharmacy carries African-American greeting cards, African-American collectibles, hard-to-find over-the-counter products, and homeopathic products.
