WATERTOWN. S.D. — County Fair recently announced two new businesses will be moving into their leased space within Parkside Place in downtown Watertown: Downtown Drug and Quick Care.

“Our main focus was to add businesses that would benefit the whole community,” Chris Gamber, co-owner of County Fair said. “A pharmacy and clinic seemed to be the perfect fit.”

Parkside Place, located at 8 2nd Street Northeast, is a mixed-use apartment building with commercial space on the first floor. County Fair is leasing a portion of the commercial space.

“We are excited to provide a place people can stop to get their medicine, see a doctor, and get their groceries, all in one convenient location,” Tyler Thuringer, co-owner of County Fair said.

Downtown Drug, owned and operated by Carole Anderson, will be a second location to the current Brown Clinic Pharmacy. They will offer full pharmacy services, including a drive through.

Anderson said “We really wanted some extra space, and with all the downtown expansion, we knew this was the perfect spot to open another pharmacy.”

Quick Care Clinics, owned and operated by Melissa Magstadt and Holly York, currently operate on the east edge of Watertown. The Parkside Place clinic will be their second Watertown location as well.

“It’s an exciting time in the history of the Watertown downtown revitalization,” Melissa Magstadt, Nurse Practitioner said. “We are excited to partner with visionaries to bring a convenient option for urgent care in our growing and energetic downtown.”

“Really this is three downtown businesses working together to provide what the community needs and wants,” Chris Gamber, County Fair owner said.

Parkside Place is projected to be complete Fall 2021, with both Downtown Drug and Quick Care opening shortly after.
