A non-chain drug store that is not mundane as per a Rite Aid, Walgreens or CVS is always a delight. This store called Central Drug has been around since 1927 and appears to have been remodeled in the late 50's or early 60's except as you see the old wood shelves have remained.

Although a neon sign would match perfectly, at least the new one is nicely done and not a boring piece of backlit plastic. 02-08
