A new independent pharmacy, Prescription Pad, opened in Downtown Weaverville following the closure of Weaverville Drug Co.
Business owner Anthony Randolph has signed the lease to open his next Prescription Pad pharmacy in Weaverville.
Weaverville Drug Company originally opened in 1885, but the present-day store opened in 1928 and was a longstanding institution of downtown Weaverville. A recent Walgreens buyout of Smith Drug Company marks the startling end to this local favorite.
Well, ‘all good things must come to an end,’ so the saying goes. On Monday, that was the case for the Weaverville Healthwise Pharmacy, aka to locals as Weaverville Drug Company.
