Bechtel’s Pharmacy, Inc. has been serving the residents of Slatington and Walnutport Boroughs, and Lehigh and Washington Townships since 1961.
Joseph G. Bechtel, R.Ph., purchased the former Moyer’s Rexall Drug Store, located at 320 Main St. in Slatington, from Charles Moyer and took control of the business on June 19, 1961. Ten years later, he moved the store to its current location on the corner of Main and Center Streets. Mr. Bechtel built his business with excellent service, not just to his customers, but also to his community. He was an active member of the Slatington Chamber of Commerce, Northern Lehigh Jaycees, Rotary Club of Slatington, Lehigh Valley Pharmaceutical Association, and the Assumption B.V.M. Parish, and served on the Slatington Borough Council, showing his commitment to his business, community, and profession.
In 1983, his son, Edward, joined Joe in the business. Ed has followed in his father’s footsteps serving his community, as Committee Chairman for Boy Scout Troup 58 and president of the Northern Lehigh Chamber of Commerce, and his profession, as president of both the Lehigh Valley Pharmacists Association and the PA Pharmacist Association. Ed has also served the citizens of the commonwealth as a member of the State Board of Pharmacy, acting as chairman for two years.
As Joe approached his retirement from full-time work, another son, John, joined the business as its business manager. Jack, as he is known, got involved with the youth sports programs of the Northern Lehigh area, serving as the Director of the NLYAA Basketball program for ten years and coaching baseball, soccer, and basketball. He has served as treasurer of both the Greater Northern Lehigh Chamber of Commerce and the Slatington Library and is a past president of the Greater Northern Lehigh Chamber of Commerce.
The goal of Bechtel’s Pharmacy is to serve the health concerns of the local communities. Ed believes that “Our prescription department is a destination. You are not only getting your medication, but you are also able to tap into the knowledge of our pharmacists.”
