Craig’s Drug Store set to mark 150th anniversary
— Craig’s Drug Store will begin celebrating its 150th anniversary with a ribbon cutting at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, June 14.
The celebration will be set up in the parking lot next to the drug store at 409 Race Street.
After cutting the ribbon, a presentation of donations will be made to local first responder departments and the Dorchester County Board of Education.
A special combo lunch will be offered, including a grilled hot dog, a small bag of chips, and a soda for just $1.50. Small bags of popcorn will also be available
for $.25. All proceeds from the sale of food will benefit the Skipjack Nathan of Dorchester.
The family has worked diligently to preserve their history, and many of the antique pharmacy artifacts will be on display in the store. These include an old prescription record book and tools the pharmacists used to fill prescriptions long ago.
The event is organized by Craig’s and the Dorchester Chamber of Commerce, and all are welcome to participate. Please RSVP by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, calling 410-228-3575, or joining the event on Facebook at
