Our History

In 1904, at the age of 22, A.J. Hartig opened his first drugstore in his native Dubuque on the corner of 1st and Locust streets.  Hartig Drug continued growing through the early twentieth century by expanding the product line and winning over the Dubuque community.

Hartig was an innovative company from the beginning, introducing such breakthroughs as the conversion from all over-the-counter shopping to “self-service,” with nonprescription items moved onto shelves throughout the stores.  Today, Hartig represents the state-of-the-art in filling prescriptions over the internet and through their popular full-service digital-photo department.
