Certificate Vignette

The Longs Drug Stores tradition of caring began in 1938 when brothers Joe and Tom Long opened the first Longs store and helped institute the idea of self-service in the retail drug industry. Low prices, excellent service, and a tradition of "treating others as we, ourselves, would like to be treated" brought quick success to Joe's and Tom's first store. They were able to open another store only 10 months later.

Longs Drug Stores, a recognized leader in the chain drug industry from virtually all standpoints, has grown steadily through the years. Longs has been publicly held since 1961 and traded on the New York Stock Exchange since 1971. They are one of the top 10 drug chains in the nation with over 400 stores in 6 western states: California, Hawaii, Nevada, Colorado, Washington and Oregon.
