About Us

The Harper family is Crestview Pharmacy.

JD & Imogene are from Ranger, TX. The high school sweethearts married as teenagers. They spent time in Alabama when JD was in the U.S. Army. But returned to Texas when JD went to UT College of Pharmacy.

JD bought the store in 1964. It's been in good hands ever since.

Company History

JD Harper bought Crestview Pharmacy in 1964. At the time single family homes in this neighborhood were selling for $7,500 (no, that's not a typo!)

It didn't take long for JD & Imogene to decide that this was home. They put down roots and had two boys, Jerry and David. Both boys graduated from Anderson High School, and they both went on to University of Texas College of Pharmacy. You'll find them both working at Crestview.

Taking a step into Crestview Pharmacy is like taking a step back in time. Pictures of Jerry and David as children have been replaced by pictures of their children. In the back of the store is a booth that's reminiscent of a Norman Rockwell sketch: regular customers who have lived in this neighborhood for 50 years exchanging stories. Those stories often get better with time.

Austin still feels small here. Original customers now send their children to the pharmacy. Those children often come in with their children.

The family gets calls from those big chain store competitors, wanting them to sell-out. But that's just not their style. As long as there's a Harper there, you can be guaranteed you're supporting local business.

The Next Generation

The Pharmacy is still family. Today it's run by Jerry & David. But you'll still find Mom bringing us lunch (she's the best!).

Together, they have more than 50 years experience caring for your health. No request is too small, no question goes unanswered.
