At Gilbert's Drug Store we strive for top customer service. In January 2010 we were honored to receive the "Best Customer Service In Town" award, from the Oscoda AuSable Chamber of Commerce.
Because we are an independent family owned pharmacy it has been a challenge through the years competing with the huge chain-pharmacies that dominate the neighborhood pharmacy industry today. One way we have overcome this challenge is through providing quick and courteous customer service. Over the past seventy-seven years we have had many loyal customers, and it is through our excellent customer service that we like to express our gratitude. Thank You!
Set peacefully along the shores of beautiful Lake Huron and the mighty AuSable River, Oscoda offers more than 120 square miles of pure Michigan.
From canoeing to sunbathing, the natural destinations of our community provide activities for water enthusiasts of all varieties. For visitors whose interests are more land-oriented, Oscoda's downtown district includes an assortment of eclectic shopping and renown restaurants. And lovers of history and the outdoors alike know Oscoda as the home of the famous Lumberman's Monument located in the Lake Huron National Forest.
Oscoda's natural resources have always played an important role in the community, even as local industry has changed over the years. The area was first settled in the late 1860s. Originally named, AuSable, the town was renamed based on the writings of Henry Schoolcraft, who named it after the American Indian words "Ossim" and "Muscoda," meaning "Pebbly Prairie." Oscoda played a major role in the distribution of lumber on the Great Lakes during the lumbering era. Today, our primary industry is tourism thanks to the abundance of year-round recreational activities available to residents and visitors, such as camping, fishing, hunting, cross country skiing, snowmobiling and more.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about the beauty, the amenities and the fun of Oscoda Township. We welcome you to enjoy all our community has to offer...naturally.
