In 1920, W.C. Sprinkle and Dr. C. N. Sprinkle (great grand father and grand father of present owner Chuck Sprinkle) purchased the business.
...
Chuck Sprinkle was working for Rite Aid in Weaverville at the time. Knowing the long history of the store and having worked there as an intern, he hated to see the Store close. He and his wife Brenda were able to purchase the store from Mr. Kemp and the other owners. When his division manager found out Chuck was buying the Drug Store, he told him he "would starve to death. That store isn't doing any business."

Despite this warning, Chuck and Brenda went ahead with the purchase. When the Sprinkle's bought the Drug Store in 1993, it was in need of a lift, both in sales and structure. The roof leaked, and almost everything under it was either dirty or worn out. With very little money to work with, Chuck, Brenda and their boys spent many hours cleaning, painting and remolding the old store. Slowly the old business came back to life. They brought back the old soda fountain and kept the look of the old neighborhood store. The Drug Store again became a gathering place for people to enjoy an ice cream treat. By providing caring personal service and accepting most insurance plans, the prescription volume began to grow. Chuck operated the pharmacy at 26 N. Main for 8 years. Despite his former manager's warning, the business had not only survived, but grown. By 2005 Weaverville Drug would be filling more prescriptions per week than any store the former Manager had in his division in 1993.

Chuck Sprinkle was one of the pharmacists who took classes to become a certified diabetes councilor. He began with less than half a dozen patients; Chuck and the patients learned together how to properly manage diabetes. The project surprisingly showed fast results, with the City saving thousands of dollars on employee medical costs the first year. The program was expanded to other Asheville employees and after a couple of years, asthma, high blood pressure and high cholesterol were added to the diseases Chuck and the other pharmacists manage. Mission Hospital added their employees to the program once it proved so successful.
The pharmacists at Weaverville Drug still see patients regularly, monitoring and helping them manage their diseases. This pilot project that Chuck helped start has now been copied all over the nation. It has been written up numerous times in national pharmacy journals. Today, thousands of patients all over the country are managed by pharmacists due to the success of the project.
