Curbside Pick Up Downtown

For the safety of our staff and our customers, our co-op has decided to limit service at our Downtown (State St) location to curbside pickup, deliveries, and mail outs.

CURBSIDE PICK UP for prescriptions and any other items will continue to be available to you and our store hours are unchanged.

Please call ahead (608-251-3242) to place your order.

Other shopping options include free delivery of any purchase of $25 or more to all our customers in Madison, Middleton and Monona.

Our Middleton store will remain open for in-store shopping as long as we feel it is safe.

We offer curbside pick-up as well. Call 608-310-5390


The super spike in COVID-19 cases in Madison has caused a lot of concern from both the public and our workers, and we feel it would be safer for everyone to spend less time downtown in crowds. We encourage everyone to wear masks, stay socially distanced, and wash their hands. We will continually assess the situation and adapt as needed.

We appreciate your support and understanding during this trying time. We want to be open and available as much as we possibly can, but we will also always prioritize the safety of our community first.


Community Pharmacy is Celebrating 48 years!

September is a big month for us. We welcome students back to campus, help families ready their kids for school, prepare our customers to greet the new season (cold and flu, allergies, slowing metabolism, sleep cycle changes, etc.), and of course, we celebrate our anniversary!

This month we turn 48, and we wouldn’t be here without all of you!

Watch a video history of Community Pharmacy!


While we won’t have our usual in-store birthday cake and festivities, due to Covid-19, we’ll have loads of in-store and online birthday giveaways ALL MONTH LONG! There will be gift baskets galore, including some of our all-time favorite products. Stop by often (wearing a mask, of course!) and be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram to enter online-only giveaways.

What began in 1972 as a volunteer-run pharmacy to provide students with affordable medications has grown into the Community Pharmacy (downtown) and Community Wellness Shop (Middleton) you know today — a deeply committed worker cooperative providing our community with a full range of affordable options to support empowered good health. As always, we attempt to source as many of our products as possible from small, local businesses and companies that prioritize sustainability over maximizing profits. And as always, we stand with our community to support issues of equity and social justice.


🌱 Please keep in mind that both of our locations will be closed Monday, September 7th for Labor Day.

🌱 For our customers who use our Online Ordering Form on our website: We have been encountering technical difficulties with our online form that has resulted in delays with our order processing. Until this issue is resolved, we are removing this function from our website. We are encouraging all our amazing customers to call either of our locations to place their orders. Your questions about product availability, pricing and options can be answered immediately and we will have your orders ready as soon as possible.



We’re head-over-heels for Sukin, our newest 100% vegan & cruelty-free line of natural skin and body care.

Happy Juneteenth!

To help our POC community celebrate (and look stunning while they celebrate) we wanted to feature some amazing health, beauty and chocolate products by and for our black community and an amazing organization in Madison working with black women in the community!

The Foundation for Black Women’s Wellness is a group committed to supporting black women in our community through unprecedented times, health crisis, and general wellness. They do some really amazing relief work and are specifically focusing in on aid for black women affected by COVID-19.

Alaffia is black owned and committed to providing products that work for a variety of hair types (we also love their whole shea butter line that is eco-friendly and affordable).

Divine Chocolate is a black women run company that’s base is structured around farmer cooperatives in Ghana (their labor practices are just as good as their chocolate we swear). #Juneteenth


  • 06/18/2020

In celebration of Juneteenth Alaffia founder and CEO Olowo-n’djo Tchala sent out a beautiful message in regards to the holiday to all the businesses that continue to carry his products.

We have always had a close relationship with Tchala and even had him visit our store and meet our staff! Above are his words on juneteenth and some photos from the day we got to spend with him!

Community Pharmacy stands in solidarity with George Floyd, his family, and community.

Community Pharmacy will always stand with marginalized communities and will work to provide aid and supplies to those most affected by systemic violence and racism. We have provided supplies (masks, gloves, bandages, etc.) to protesters in Minneapolis, and we will work to distribute masks and other supplies to protect the Madison community’s health and safety. Many of our cooperative members are white and we must be critical of our internalized racism and how we as individuals and business owners have benefited from privilege.

We will continually strive to put forth the radical politics and actions we believe in and we hope our community will do the same. George Floyd was murdered in broad daylight. He is one in a painfully long list of black and brown people that have been killed by institutionalized racism within the police force. As a business committed to the health of our community, we recognize racism as a public health issue as well as a deeply moral and spiritual problem. As essential as protests are, this will not be solved overnight. We encourage white allies to show up in a sustained way to support black and brown organizers.

There are many groups doing this ongoing work, a few who we continually want to appreciate and support are:
Freedom Inc. @freedominc The Free the 350 Bail Fund @freethe350bailfund
and Dane Co. Community Defense @dane_county_community_defense

If you can donate to any of these groups please do, however we understand that money is not a resource that everyone has to give, nor is it the only resource we can give!

All of these groups need support in many different ways, whether it be more community turn-out to their events or more folks to give rides and deliver meals to those in need. So please reach out and get involved in whatever way feels safe and doable right now.

Love and Solidarity,
Community Pharmacy

Welcome to May!

Though this has been a springtime unlike any other, all you need is to look outside to be reminded that this is a time of growth and renewal. Seasonal transitions are ideal times to shed what hasn’t been serving your health and begin new, positive health routines. 


Reducing stress levels is one of the most important things you can do for your overall health. Chronic stress can negatively alter immune system responses, making you more likely to get sick. Among the many items we have on sale this month, here are a few especially useful in helping mitigate stress.

Try CBD — Did you know that consuming hemp-derived cannabinoids can help balance the body’s stress response? It’s one of the many reasons to give CBD a try. As hemp production has increased across the country, prices are beginning to come down. 

We’re excited to offer new, lower prices on many of our +PlusCBD & CHARLOTTE’S WEB products. 

*What’s more, you can receive a complimentary 10 pack of +PlusCBD gummies when you spend $30 or more on +PlusCBD. Quantities are limited.

Get Outside — Studies show that time in the sun elevates mood, increases vitamin D levels, and decreases cortisol (your body’s stress hormone). Sadly, ticks and mosquitoes don’t adhere to social distancing protocols, so be prepared! We carry lots of safe, DEET-free alternatives.  It’s also smart to increase your sun exposure gradually, and clear zinc sunscreens are an excellent choice choice for UV protection. W.S. Badger offers many of our favorite options and all are 15% OFF this month.


While our stores are temporarily closed to walk-in customers, we are taking phone orders for CURBSIDE PICKUP , FREE DELIVERY in the Madison area, and FREE SHIPPING in Dane County with a minimum $25 purchase. As always, we are happy to fulfill mail orders nationwide.

The Community Wellness Shop in Middleton will resume Saturday hours starting next weekend. (Saturday, May 9th from 11am to 4pm).

Please check our website, Facebook and Instagram for future adjustments to our hours and services during this ever-changing time.

With much love and gratitude and the best wishes for good health,

The staff of Community Pharmacy and Community Wellness Shop.
