For some reason Corner Drug seemed like a friendly "anchor" for the businesses downtown.
It was literally on the corner ..... of Main Street and College Avenue .... and had an entrance on both streets, just like the current occupant Moe's does. At the back of the store was the pharmacy and nearer the front (College Ave. side) was the lunch counter. The food was pretty decent and the store itself had most everything you'd expect to find in a drug store.
But, it wasn't the only game in town by any means. It had competition in the form of Center Drug (across the street) and Tech Drug (on the same block), and Gables Pharmacy on the south end of town. Still, the Corner Drug store seems to be the one us old timers remember best.
Why can't we have a drugstore downtown again?
