Lowcountry Proud Guerin's Pharmacy: Oldest pharmacy in SC

Posted: Updated:
SUMMERVILLE, SC -

Guerin's Pharmacy is located in downtown Summerville, South Carolina.  It is the oldest pharmacy in South Carolina.  And has operated as an independent pharmacy since 1871. Charles H. Dunning, Jr purchased the business from his uncle's estate in 1975. Today his daughter, Barbara A. Dunning, is the pharmacist in charge and Charles Dunning works part-time.  She says their customers rely on them.

"People know who we are. They like that we don't change. Customer service is what everyone is looking for."  Dunning said.

Guerin's is a member of Summerville DREAM and the South Carolina Pharmacist Association.

Guerin's offers limited durable medical equipment at affordable prices and compounding services. They even make medications for animals.

"We make stuff for cats and dogs, especially this time of year cats and dogs. (They) are driven crazy by the thunder and the rain and so we do a lot to help the owners."

Guerin's 1920's fountain serves up the best hot dogs in town, ice cream, floats, milkshakes, lemonades, orangeades and fountain sodas. 

Guerin's is open Monday thru Friday 9am to 6pm and 9 am to 5pm on Saturdays. They are closed on Sunday.  We offer 24 hour prescription refills with an answering system for refill messages.
