About Village Pharmacy: Village Pharmacy began serving the community of Baldwin, WI in 1880. The pharmacy was originally Christensen’s Pharmacy in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. Ole Aamodt took over ownership in the early 1900’s through the 1950’s, and it was renamed Aamodt’s Pharmacy during that time period. Ole’s son-in-law, Lyle Rasmussen, took ownership when Ole passed in the late 1950’s. Lyle incorporated the store as Rasmussen Village Pharmacy, Inc. in 1971. Lyle’s son, Dane Rasmussen, took ownership in the early 1990’s through 2012. In December 2012, Dave Willink purchased the business and has owned it since that time. Village Pharmacy now has a second location in Glenwood City, a telepharmacy through Western Wisconsin Health, and a third location in Ellsworth.
