Tech Drug Store

Pay no attention to that hippie in the foreground.

As mentioned earlier in a post about Corner Drug, the Tech Drug store was one of three located in the heart of downtown Blacksburg.  I can't say for sure, but I think Tech Drug may have been the smaller of the three.  The other one was Center Drug located across the street in the old Sharky's building.

Tech Drug was at 213 N Main Street where the right hand side of the College Emporium now resides.  The set-up was the same as the others ..... typical drug store items, a pharmacy, and a "soda shop" of sorts where you could grab a stool at the counter and order some lunch.

Tech Drug faded away and eventually became Partyrama, and the Center Drug became Dave's Hot Dogs.
