New Drug Store Will Open Soon
"Home Owned and Home Operated" is the slogan of the Grantsville Drug
Store which will open in the Richards building on Main street in about
two weeks. The new store will be managed by Dr. John B. Smith, pharmacist,
for Company, and is owned by Dr. H.C. Toepfer and Dr. Smith.
Fixtures and stock of the City Pharmacy in Parkersburg were purchased
this week and the same moved into the Richards building which was lately
occupied by W.J. Mathews (illegible) being put in place by Roy Stump and
A complete fountain service will be maintained and a stock of staple
drugs and sundries will be kept at all times. Prices will be kept
to the minimum in an effort to compete with stores in larger cities.
The new store is expected to be ready for service by the latter part
of the month.
