2019 Best of the Boat pharmacy: Lyon Drug Store & Soda Fountain
In 2019, Lyon Drug at 840 Lincoln Ave. celebrates its 100th year of operation, all in the same location — enough to make it rise to the top of anyone’s list.
Founded in 1920 as Chamberlain Gray before adopting the Lyon family name in 1946, Lyon was sold by 37-year owners Tom and Nancy Clapsaddle to pharmacists Jen Campbell and Wendy Lyon, who are carrying on its winning tradition of local ownership and friendly customer service.
“We have a lot of customers who are loyal to the independent pharmacy in town,” says Lyon, crediting the staff for the accolades. “We’ve been here for a very long time and have great customers.”
Bonus: an old-fashioned ice cream counter where you can load up on pistachio while you wait for your prescription.
