Mike Cook, RPh

Owner and Pharmacist

Always a Friendly Smile
Mike Cook

Mike grew up in Wisconsin and was working in a drugstore under the guidance of a pharmacist by the age of 15. After completing an undergraduate degree at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, he went to Michigan to study pharmacy at Ferris State University. He completed the program in 1978 and decided to live in the west Michigan area.

Mike worked for several pharmacies in western Michigan over the years, including 15 years as the owner of a pharmacy in Allendale that was located inside Grand Valley Foods. He eventually settled in Montague when he joined Todd Pharmacy, an affiliate of the Hometown Pharmacy chain. In June 2011, however, Hometown Pharmacy closed this store and sold its files to Walgreens, leaving Montague without a pharmacy.

The closing of Todd Pharmacy in 2011 started Mike thinking about opening a family pharmacy in Montague. Although this was not something he had envisioned doing at this point in his life, he felt it was necessary. His hope hds always been to work in the community in which he lived and, after retiring, work a little here and there to keep in touch with the people that he considered family. Mike’s Family Pharmacy has made his personal dream a reality. "My heartfelt thanks go out to the hundreds of people who supported me in making this decision."

With strong support from family and friends, Mike made the decision to open his own pharmacy in Montague. This fulfilled a long-held dream to have his own business in a small town allowing him to personally serve his community. In February 2012, Mike’s Family Pharmacy will open and Mike, well, he is a happy man.
