Smiths Grove Drug Store Closing

By Lauren Hanson | 

Residents of Smiths Grove are preparing to say "good-bye" to the town's drug store.

Carroll Bevarly, the owner of Smiths Grove Drug Store, will retire and close the pharmacy on May 15.

Besides being a pharmacy, the drug store is also a gathering place where many have breakfast and lunch.

Bevarly says he'll miss his lunch-time crowd and he wishes there was a way to keep the store open.

He says: "I'm sorry I couldn't find someone to get interested in the drug store to keep it open for the town."
