Night View Rexall Drug Store Entrance

May 30th, 2013, 12:30H · Topics: Business · Print

A nice view looking through the front doorway of the Rexall Drug Store located at the intersection of Forsyth and Main Streets in Downtown Jacksonville.  Looks like you would be visually assaulted with advertising as you entered the store.  To make matters worse they even used the presidential race between Dwight Eisenhower and Adlai Stephenson to sell Dial soap.  I can’t date the image exactly but it had to be 1952 or 1956.  Both years the two candidates faced off against each other and both years Eisenhower won the election.  You can see an earlier post from the Rexall Drug Store here.

    Was going to the Florida theater last Saturday night and asked my sister as we passed by if she remembered what was on that corner.
    Her reply Rexall drug store. One of the stores we would visit after a trip to the movies.

      I worked there at night as a “soda jerk” at the age of 15.
