Watson’s Drive Up Open

Within the past few weeks, the drive up lane at Watson’s Drug Store in downtown Greenville opened.

Store Owner Bart Caldieraro is proud of the project which began after the Greenville City Council approved a TIF agreement with the business. He said it turned out exactly how he wanted and he’s heard great feedback. The drive through is convenient for whatever the patient wants, according to Caldieraro. He said some use it because of mobility issues and some use it because the parking spots in front of the building are full.

Caldieraro said customers wanting to use the drive-up lane can call, send an order electronically or use the website to request multiple items, and they will be ready when the person gets to the store.

Watson’s Drug Store opened in Greenville in 1881 and Caldieraro said he has learned a lot about the importance of the store in the city. He said he considered moving off the square and city officials talked him out of it. He said he’s had great support from the city.
