Neel’s Pharmacy Celebrates 80 Years!

Celebrating 80 years in business is an exciting milestone for Jon P. Frieda of Neels Pharmacy. “Neels Pharmacy was established in 1932 in downtown St. Louis by my great grandfather William J. Neels, Senior. One of the original businesses in Crestwood, William’s son Jim Neels, my grandfather, moved the pharmacy to the Crestwood Bank Building in 1962, where he began serving residents of Crestwood, Kirkwood, and Webster Groves. When working towards her Masters Degree in History at Webster University, Jim’s wife Patricia Neels, my grandmother, researched the Neels family and discovered a history of apothecaries dating back as far as the 15th century. In short, the practice of pharmacy is literally in our blood.”

In 1999, Patty Neels Frieda, Jim’s daughter and my mother, moved Neels Pharmacy into the Crestwood Executive Center at the corner of Watson and Sappington. After receiving a Masters in Business Administration from Webster University in 2005, I began working at the pharmacy. Four generations after the original downtown location, Neels Pharmacy is a holistic pharmacy care provider, integrating traditional pharmacy services, human and veterinary compounding, herbal/nutritional supplements, homeopathic remedies, and therapeutic teas. Patty Frieda is a pharmacist and Certified Clinical Nutritionist and offers consultations by appointment. Since 1962, Neels offered and still continues to provide free deliver to Affton, Crestwood, Glendale, Kirkwood, Sunset Hills, and Webster Groves.
