In 1974 Kenny Lomax graduated Pharmacy School at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock. Shortly thereafter he purchased his first pharmacy in Monette known as “Ken’s City Drug”. It was your typical hometown corner drugstore with a soda fountain and unique gifts. In 1994, the drug store moved to a new location in Monette and changed names to “Monette Discount Drug.”
After graduating High School in Monette in 1998, Kyle Lomax attended University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock. Kyle married Kass Qualls in 2001 and graduated Pharmacy School in 2002. Shortly thereafter he and Kass began working with Kenny as they purchased the Jonesboro store, Plaza Drug, in 2000.
