Tarrant's Cafe, Richmond, VA.

"In 1883, The storefront at One West Broad Street became a drugstore owned by Harrison and Pierce. In 1905, it was taken over by William G. Tarrant, who started Tarrant Drug Company. This corner drug store sold glasses and all kinds of medicinal remedies. Physicians could prescribe and purchase remedies on site. After Tarrant's death in 1961, the drug store was taken over by his son Bill until 1987.  Today, Tarrant's Cafe is bringing upscale but affordable neighborhood service to Richmond's community."
