Carl Bouldin, left, was one of Nestor Stewarts first customers at Stewart Pharmacy some 50 years ago. Bouldin stopped by the pharmacy Friday and received assistance from 34-year employee David Hill.
You never know how things are going to hit you. When I heard several weeks ago Stewart Pharmacy was going to close, I wasn't overwhelmed with emotion.In the weeks that have followed, I've done several articles on the storied business and it never really sunk in that this is the end. Well, it finally sunk in Friday as I walked past empty aisles on my way to the door and it occurred to me I was likely leaving Stewart Pharmacy for the last time.I guess you can grow attached to a business, if for no other reason than it's always been there.
