Rediger.  In 1976, the store was enlarged to serve not only the drug store, but also had a Hallmark and gift area.  Nancy Rediger had a wonderful talent of gift wrapping and soon became very well know for it.  Redigers Pharmacy was well known for its excellence in customer service and quality prescriptions, Hallmark cards and gifts.

In 1987, Floyd John Rediger sold Redigers Pharmacy to son John T. Rediger.  John T. Rediger R.Ph.
