"I have been a professor and sleep medicine researcher at Cornell University for 48 years, and a summer resident of Charlevoix for more than 70 years. When two "big box" pharmacies opened in Charlevoix, I must admit I was happy to see these rather large buildings that carried many products. However I quickly learned that Central Drug Store was, BY FAR, the place to get my medicines and medical supplies. If I went to the larger pharmacies, I had to visit both to fill my needs, and even then I often had to place and wait for delivery of special orders because various items were not stocked.

A month ago I wondered into your store on Bridge Street and was dumbfounded to see ALL the items I often need (including Dr. Comfort Shoes and Medihoney) sitting on your shelves and displays. I want to congratulate you, and thank you, for your professional insights into what every drug store should stock to best serve their customers. Keep up the great work, the wonderful personal attention you give us, and the friendliness of your staff. You have brought big time service, in the heart of town, to our small and precious community."
