In 2000, Moon’s added another pharmacy, Moon’s Pharmacy LTC, within their existing building to serve the aging community as assisted living facilities were built in the region. In 2003, the pharmacy began offering vaccines, including flu, pneumonia, shingles and travel immunizations to its customers. In 2005, a robotic dispensing system was added that dispenses the top 175 fastest-moving medications, allowing pharmacists additional consulting time while also saving technician labor costs. By 2007, Moon’s was the largest and only full service independent pharmacy to offer compounding services for a population of over 64,425 in Tifton and surrounding cities.
At Morgan Moon's untimely death from cancer, ownership of the business passed to his widow, Cynthia, and his surviving three children. Today, Moon’s Pharmacy continues to thrive. Cynthia Moon retains primary ownership and manages the business and operations of the pharmacy. Catherine is the pharmacy director. Floyd is on temporary leave to complete his pharmacy degree, and Claire serves as the system’s organizational consultant and works behind the scenes with marketing and design operations.
Moon’s Pharmacy is synonymous with Tifton. The two are inseparable. The business is poised to continue into its fourth generation, enhancing the quality of life for its community residents. Moon’s Pharmacy, while a well-run business, is more than that: It is a vital cog in the wheel of the community’s life.
