Pharmacy Fizzes in N.C.-- Part 3: Brown-Gardner, Sutton's Drug Store and Dee's Drug Store

BROWN-GARDNER in Greensboro

This phamacy managed to survive the opening of an Eckerd Drug across the street.  The Eckerd's is now closed.  A power lunch would be an orangeade, crinkle cut fries and a hot dog.

SUTTON'S DRUG STORE in Chapel Hill

"The consistency of the ice is key.  Crushed ice holds all the flavor.  It melts and dilutes the sugar, and it really makes it colder.  The best thing about it is you get to eat the crushed ice when you're done,' says owner Don Pinney.

They no longer sell drugs, though.

DEE'S DRUG STORE in Burgaw

Opened in 1916.  The business has been sold and will be moving to a nearby Piggly-Wiggly but the soda fountain won't be going with it.  It is unclear what will happen to it.  This will happen in the fall, so there is still time to get your treats.

I am thinking of stopping by on my way back to Goldsboro in a few days.
