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 loyal customers,” Lyon said, crediting the staff for the accolades. “We’ve been here for a very long time and appreciate everyone’s loyalty.”
Bonus: an old-fashioned ice cream counter where you can load up on ice cream floats, cones and old-fashioned sodas.
