GuidePoint Pharmacy in Winthrop opened in January 2011. The former drugstore in town suddenly closed without warning in November 2010. This left Winthrop and the surrounding communities without a pharmacy. Local pharmacists Megan and Ellen were approached by Mike and Laura Schwartzwald to open a new pharmacy in town. Within two months, the store was open and ready for business.

We are a small community pharmacy focusing on first-class customer care. We pride ourselves in helping our patients and enjoy getting to know them. Being a smaller store we may not have every product in stock, but we are always willing to find what you are looking for and order it in for the next day.

We offer unit-dose packaging and provide services to area group homes, assisted living, and long-term care facilities. Located in a rural area, we offer free delivery service in Winthrop and to the surrounding towns of Gibbon, Fairfax, Lafayette, Gaylord, and Arlington. We also offer free mail service. Our pharmacists are trained in administering immunizations and Medication Therapy Management (MTM) services. Our technicians are trained, certified, and have over 20 years combined experience.
