Brown Drug Company
Quincy, IL
Thompson Drugs [gone]
Spring Valley, IL
The Brown Drug Company was established in 1914. The orange and navy color scheme probably indicates that the store was once affiliated with Rexall. [map]

Thompson Drugs opened here in 1885. The store closed in 2014. This store had a classic orange and navy Rexall sign in the 1950s. The projecting sign in the photos above was probably from the 1960s. These signs are gone now. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2.

Kosirog Rexall Pharmacy [gone]
Chicago, IL
Browns Drug Store [gone]
Effingham, IL
The Kosirog Rexall Pharmacy featured the classic navy and orange neon sign as well as porcelain enamel panels. The signs were gone by 2019. For more, see this website.

Browns Drug Store featured a nice old Rexall-colored tile sign. This photo is from 2005. By 2013, the store was still there but this sign was gone.

Endris Pharmacy [gone]
Pana, IL
Bill's Pizza
Mundelein, IL
This Endriss Pharmacy was vacant but this sign was still there in 2010. By 2013, it was gone. I believe this store was originally Whitman Drug, then Kuhn Drug, then Kuhn-Endris Drug and lastly, Endris Drug. These thin signs did not have neon.

The Bill's Pizza sign was originally a Rexall sign. The owner bought the sign at a store in Waukegan, IL in 1957 and had it reworked. In 2015, a variance was granted to allow the sign to stay despite its violation of a new sign code. [map]

former Rexall Drug store [gone]
Montpelier, IN
This former Rexall Drug store was being converted into a Teen Center when these photos were taken in 2010. The building appeared to be vacant in 2013 but these signs were still there. By 2016, the signs were gone.

Phillips Drugs [gone]
Richmond, IN
Cooper Drug
Augusta, KS
Richey's Rexall Drug [gone]
Erie, KS
Phillips Drugs has been here since the 1950s. This sign was removed from the facade in 2019 during building remodeling. New signs went up instead. For more, see this website. [map]

Cooper Drugs has been here since 1922. For more, see this website. [map]

Richey's Rexall Drug was closed when these photos were taken in 2010. The building was demolished in 2011. I don't know what became of the signs.

Irwin-Potter Drug
Anthony, KS
DeFever Osborn Drug
Independence, KS
Irwin-Potter Drug was founded in 1878 as the Pioneer Drug Co. It became Irwin-Potter Drug in 1908. Sometime after 1947, the store moved to this location. This double-sided sign is now mounted flat against the building. [map]

DeFever Osborn Drug opened in 1947. The store now houses the American Soda Fountain & Sandwich Shoppe. [map]

Crowell Drug Co. [gone]
Pittsburg, KS
The Crowell Drug Co. was established in 1890. This store closed in 2016. The orange "DRUGS" panel was removed in 2017 for a private collection. I don't know what will happen with the other signs.

The Hollier Drugs store was also vacant in 2010. It was still vacant in 2015. Apparently, the business was originally known as the Godard Drug Co. [map]
