2024 Best Drugstore

Gary Drug Co.

Closing in on its 90th year in business, Gary Drug is in a class by itself. Owned by the same family since the 1970s, employees are on a first-name basis with most regulars, and pharmacists or technicians are always on hand for a consult. The well-stocked store carries home medical supplies and health and beauty items, not to mention a robust newsstand with magazines you won’t find at other locations in the city.
