You enter via an ancient screen door, and the counter is straight inside. The high counter of the Nantucket Pharmacy is adorned with traditional swivel seats, taking customers back in time. You may grab a seat at the counter and get a grilled cheese or frappe before browsing the giftware and personal care items in the store’s rear room. Nantucket Pharmacy provides everything you need, from shampoo to a quick bite to eat.
A last remnant of Nantucket’s past. One is transported to a bygone era when waiting for service on a counter stool and swiveling to look around. The Hub used to sell newspapers back in the day when Main Street had two pharmacies, two apparel stores, a discount department store, a hardware store, no art galleries, a dive sailor bar where fights routinely spilled out onto the street, and so on. Those were the days, indeed.
If you want to take your kids to a place that will bring back fond memories of your own youth, visit this drug store that also has a soda fountain and delicious ice cream with lots of fun flavors.
