Retro pharmacy

If you're looking for an old
fashioned pharmacy, you may be
in luck: The Village Apothecary
on South University Avenue is
definitely old school. In fact, the
pharmacy has been in Ann Arbor
longer than Michigan Stadium.
According to owner Garry Turn-
er, the store first opened in the
1910s, but it's been so long that
even he wasn't sure exactly what
year it opened.
Although Turner has only
owned the pharmacy since 1994,
he said he still tries to run it with
a customer-friendly attitude rem-
iniscent of a simpler time.
"I just tell all the help to treat
everybody who walks in like its
your aunt and uncle" Turner said.
Although Turner strives to cre-
ate an old-fashioned sense of com-
munity, thephysical store is pretty
modern. You won't find antique
Coke bottles or homemade beef
jerky in the aisles. Instead you'll

find Orbit gum and Pepsi Max.
But beneath the main floor -
behind a door blocking customer
use - is a lasting link to the store's
historic past.
An abandoned dry kitchen
- essentially a kitchen without
plumbing - still resides in the
basement collecting dust, Turner
said. The kitchen was used to
prepare sandwiches and the like
when the pharmacy used to have
the symbol of a classic retro phar-
macy - a soda fountain.
Alas, soda jerks no longer greet
you at The Village Apothecary
door with a refreshing egg cream
or Vanilla Coke. The pharmacy
hasn't had an operating soda
fountain in about 40 years.
Debra Cook, the store's manag-
er, said the store was an exception
to the faceless superstores that
have taken over the pharmacy
business.
