The history of our establishment...

      In the 1950s Dr. Whitlock hired Bigbee Construction to build Mitchell's pharmacy adjacent to his medical office.

The name 'Mitchell's Drugs' was painted directly onto the brick front of the building with the slogan "Cosmetics-Gifts-Sundries".  The slogan was the inspiration for our slogan "Guitars-Amps-Sundries".  For historical reasons, we kept the painted sign; just look up as you're standing under the awning.  It became White's Drugs during the 1970s (estimated date).

 

     The handmade Art Deco cabinetry is original to the building and is definitely a focal point of the building.  The cabinetry is a fine example of a 1950s pharmacy which was the primary provider of ladies cosmetics of the day.  In addiction to several 'over-the-counter' drugs (aspirin, creams, etc.) the display cases would have been filled with perfumes, lipsticks, and powders catered to the ladies of the 1950s.

 

     Also, on the left side of the showroom there was the typical drug store 'soda fountain' where you could enjoy lemonade, fizzy colas, Coke floats, etc. The back counter of the soda fountain remains, including the mirrors.  This is where the acoustic guitars are now displayed.

 

     The display cases have been restored by the Parkers and is now perfect for displaying the vintage and boutique guitars and 'sundries'.
