CHAMR is a non-profit group of manufacturers that support local businesses and bring awareness to the importance of “shopping, buying, and supporting local manufacturers.”

CHAMR also promotes charitable awareness throughout the community. CHAMR hosts dedicated events throughout the year and donate the monies from these events, such as the Charity Breakfast, to local groups like Café Appalachia, Union Mission, Manna Meals, and the Children’s Home Society of West Virginia amongst others.

Mark Lambert, President of CHAMR, stated, “It is sometimes complicated and does take extra work from everyone to truly buy local, shop local, and support local manufacturers and retailers. You will have to cooperate with one another in the give and take. It will take more than one location, vendor, or retailer to get all the items you are looking for. But never doubt that we are all stronger together. “Always remember, it may be difficult, but it can be done.”

Fruth Pharmacy is a family-owned company. Currently, Fruth Pharmacy has twenty-nine locations in West Virginia, Ohio, and Kentucky. Fruth Pharmacy will celebrate 70 years in business this November and is proud to be your Hometown Family Pharmacy.
