PICKAWAY – The locally owned and operated Circleville/Ashville Apothocary has decided to open up a locally only made section in their stores. The “Locally Made” section will offer an array of different local wares from different vendors in the area.
“We were looking to start interacting with our local Ashville and Circleville communities more. Of course, we always try to participate in health fairs and informational events but those come maybe once or twice every two months. There’s nothing really continual. After noticing more local sections pop up in supermarkets, though, we thought maybe we could also start carrying locally made products. This way we get to help promote other native businesses and also interact more with our local community,” said Ashville Apothocary.
The Apothocary has opened the Locally Made second already in both locations 3400 State Route 752 in Ashville and 1200 North Court Street in Circleville. Five vendors with different wares were chosen for the first four months they are:
Elder Forest Soap – From Circleville, Elder Forest Soap has been growing since 2001. Offering a huge array of scents and smells, Elder Forest specializes in all natural soaps and cosmetics! Check them out on Facebook or on their website at http://www.elderforestsoap.com.

We would personally like to thank the Pickaway County Welcome Center and Visitors Bureau and our Vendors for helping us start our Locally Made Section. Without your support, we wouldn’t have been able to start or see our project through.
And to our customers, please remember, these vendors will only be here for 4 months. So make sure to show your support and love in store before the end of May!
