  1. My dad was a pharmacist until about 1960.

  2. Another piece of my childhood gone.

  3. My parents used Bobbitt’s as our family pharmacy for years. Not only would we get our prescriptions there, we also bought the Sunday NY Times every week. When sick as a child, they would deliver the medicine I needed. As an adult, a couple of years before it was torn down, the pharmacists helped fill a prescription I could not find anywhere else. I miss seeing the drug store when I drive up Hawthorne.

  4. I work there in HS , now Pharmacist at WFBH

  5. Just breaks my heart,

  6. Walked down Hawthorne Rd.m many times from my grandparents home for treasures to be purchased there…fun childhood memory

  7. Didn’t Earnest Rabil run the Pharmacy there for years?They had a nice gift shop downstairs in later years.

  8. My oldest brother, Charlie was a pharmacist at Bobbits in
    Winston Salem and I’m not sure where!

  9. I used to spend time downstairs in the toy area. My favorite s were the toys made in Europe. The Corgi car selection was great and only Bocock Stroud had a better collection of Swapettes (knights with interchangable body parts and weapons). Things I saw there taught me to save my money so I could buy what I really wanted. Silver windup racecar was a favorite purchase.

  10. Bob it’s was the halfway point when walking home from Reynolds High School. Beth Bayless and Linda Young and I walked together there many an afternoon. It was cool in the late spring and warm and dry in the winter giving out cold feet and hands a break. The gift shop was a great place to visit even though we never had more than the price of a candy bar.

  11. I worked there in high school. The Rabil’s were such nice people! This makes me sad!
