Being and independent pharmacy and a member of North Carolina Mutual Drug, our low overhead costs allow us to price your cash prescriptions well below the chain pharmacy prices. So if you're ready for something different, get out of line and get in to Davis Drug Company! Now with two great locations serving Eastern and Western Johnston County.
Although Davis Drug Company was established in 1969, its roots date back to 1908 when Fulghum Drug first opened on mainstreet in Kenly. Transitioning to Talton Drug in 1946 and then Davis Drug in 1969, the drug store on mainstreet Kenly remained in continuous operation at that same location for over a century! When the current owner, Dr. Brock Wiley, purchased Davis Drug from the original owner, Jerry Davis, he knew in order to better serve his patients, he needed to move from that historic location. Although the building that housed the pharmacy for 106 years was a metaphoric monument in the Town of Kenly, the new location he chose was equally historic.
Residing 30 feet from its original location, Davis Drug Company now occupies the 114 year old Alford & Watson Hardware building at 103 W 2nd Street, Kenly. In order to carry along the rustic and antique charm of the former location, the new building was restored back to its turn-of-the-century glory with wood floors, tin ceilings, and pendant lighting. Even some of the shelving fixtures are authentic reclaimed drug store masterpieces, with the most impressive piece being the twenty-two foot long shelving unit rescued from a former drug store in Holly Springs, NC. Historic artifacts from the Town of Kenly are strewn throughout the pharmacy, including Kenly's US Post Office Front from 1942.
Though lacking historical significance, the newly opened Davis Drug in McGee's Crossroads, attempts to mimic the historical aura with similar floors, ceilings, shelving, and period lighting. Although the old fashioned decor at this location is not authentic, the old-fashioned service certainly is, featuring free home delivery, curb side pick-up, and free blood pressure screenings.
