Story of the Week


Celebrating Independent Businesses on Main Street

The National Trust for Historic Preservation and the National Main Street Center have long recognized the importance of our downtowns as obvious places to encourage and grow entrepreneurship – especially home grown places like Guerin’s Pharmacy. Located 24 miles outside of Charleston in the Main Street community of Summerville, South Carolina, Guerin’s Pharmacy has operated since 1871 making it the oldest pharmacy in the state. The tin ceiling is intact, the fountain is still operates, you can enjoy a malted or a scoop of your favorite ice cream, and the customer service can’t be beat. Learn more about the pharmacy and why it so important to do all we can to make sure independent businesses like Guerin’s stay around for generations to come in the Story of the Week by guest contributor Beppie LeGrand!
