Crystal Pharmacy, Greenwood, 1941

  • Crystal Pharmacy, Greenwood, 1941
  • "Located at 838 Main Street under the proprietorship of James E. Signorelli, the Crystal Pharmacy was situated in a business block which housed several other businesses, including a market and Tate's Lunch. According to published reports, Crystal Pharmacy specialized in prompt and accurate filling of prescriptions, 'carefully compounded by an expert registered pharmacist.' The reports go on to say that the proprietor had received many compliments on the neatness and cleanliness of the store and on the exceptionally large number of items carried in stock. The pharmacy opened for business in 1920 at the Greenwood location and carried a complete line of drugs, cosmetics, candy, toiletries, magazines, cigars and cigarettes. The soda foundation [i.e. fountain], with its line of Borden ice cream, was one of the most modern in the area. Crystal Pharmacy also acted as an agent for American Express money orders. The pharmacy was open daily from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m." -- Text from calendar by Jayne M. D'Onofrio.
