Providing Outstanding Service Since 1886

Princeton Drug Store has been serving the people of Princeton and Caldwell County since 1886. Previous Owner/Pharmacist Rod Whittington RPh has passed the keys and entrusted new Owner/Pharmacist Jim Tucker, RPh to continue the rich history of Princeton Drug Store. You will continue to find the same friendly faces that you have grown to love through the years and a couple of new ones, too. We are proud that you chose Princeton Drug Store to be your pharmacy.

We have a rich history of serving the Princeton community

Princeton Drug Store has been serving the citizens of Princeton and surrounding areas proudly since 1886. We are conveniently located in downtown Princeton across from the courthouse in the James G Dollar Building. The James G Dollar Building has been a part of historic downtown Princeton since 1902. The year of construction was molded into the concrete on the left front of the building in 1902 and is still clearly visible. The pharmacy was rebuilt in 1902 after a fire destroyed the entire city block. The pharmacy was serving Princeton as early as 1886 and maybe before. The name has changed a few times over the last century and a half, but our commitment to the Citizens of Princeton has always been one of love and support. The historic pharmacy eventually took on the town's name around 1952.

We take pride in our deep-seated roots within our community. Great service and dedication to our fellow citizens is why we have stood the test of time. We will continue to earn our place in Princeton's famed history by continuing that tradition of service and caring for our neighbors. We are the pharmacy that cared for your grandparents and we promise to take care of you and your grandchildren.
