Dates of existence



Fritsch Pharmacy began in 1920 as Beger and Schaefer at 191 King Street West in Kitchener. By 1926 the business was operated solely by Gordon Schaefer and in 1929 was taken over by E.G. Fahrner. Fahrner came from London, Ontario where he worked as a druggist at the corner of Ridout and Dundas. From 1929 until 1958 Fahrner and his wife operated the store, at times also housing his wife's hair dressing business. In 1960 after Fahrner's passing the store was taken over by Michael Fritsch who had been working there since 1942, originally as a delivery boy. In 1988 Fritsch closed the dispensary and converted the store to selling perfumes, opening Fritsch Fragrances. Over the years the numbering system of King Street has change numerous times, but the store currently stands at 201 King Street West.
