Grants Pass Pharmacy—More Than Just a Pharmacy
As a downtown institution, nothing beats Grants Pass Pharmacy, located at 414 SW 6th Street. It has been at that location since 1933,and has been a popular downtown gathering place for many generations of local residents. It's not just a pharmacy; inside you'll find a cool, old-fashioned soda fountain and deli, which is a big hit for downtown shoppers, and a unique gift department, offering everything from Snow Babies and Department 56 Villages to Crabtree & Evelyn and Caswell-Massey.
Owners Mike and Bonnie Maffett both grew up in Grants Pass and returned in 1973 to buy the pharmacy. Their daughter, Michele Belcher, returned to Grants Pass in 1993 with her husband Ken (and a degree in pharmacy) to work with her parents in the pharmacy. She is now at the helm as head pharmacist and co-owner, in addition to her duties as upcoming President of the National Community Pharmacists Association, an organization for independent pharmacies.
