Mary Doud opened Family Drug at the original location, 1825 Old Sonoma Road on November 2, 1952 in the Food City Shopping Center. Which at that time, Old Sonoma Road was the main highway between Napa and Sonoma. This was one of the first shopping centers in Napa.
Mary grew her business successfully and in 1976 hired current Owner and Head Pharmacist Tom Gracia. Ever since Tom was a kid, he had wanted to be a pharmacist. Growing up in Santa Maria he was the oldest of seven children and loved working with his father in his Pharmacy. Before Tom came to Napa he signed up for military service and served in Germany as a Pharmacy Tech. He then started school to become a Pharmacist. Shortly after graduating from the University of Iowa, with an RPh and BS in Pharmacy. Tom came to work at Family Drug as a Pharmacist and pharmacy manager with Mary Doud.
After working for years with Mary, Tom followed in his father’s footsteps and became the proud owner of Family Drug in 1992.
