In Bermuda, we are like anyone else and sometimes we got ill. Not many often because of the cold, we are lucky enough to have a clement climate, not too hot and not really cold!
But we still need to visit the doctor once in a while and get to the pharmacy. If you are looking for the best pharmacy in Bermuda, the title was awarded this year to the Roberston’s Drug Store by the judges of the Best of Bermuda Awards of The Bermudian.
These days, a pharmacy is much more than just a place to get advice on cures and buy medicines. Robertson’s Drug Store, located on York Street, in the centre of St. George, is pretty much a small supermarket. It is a household name and a kind of institution in St. George where ills have been relying on it for over seven decades to get better.
The drug store has realised the tour-de-force of taking over the People’s Pharmacy of Hamilton for the title of best pharmacy after an uncontested reign of 11 years! According to the judges of the Best of Bermuda Awards, the coup d’etat was the result of extensive renovations in Robertson’s Drug Store and a reward for having the best selection of the island in specialist and international products.
Of course you can still find medicines and remedies in the drug store as it stays their main activities and the pharmacists will be happy to help you with any health queries and prescription. But whatever you are looking for, start by Robertson’s and chances are you will not have to go any further to find it. Or, if you have had no luck finding what you needed anywhere else, Robertson’s is always Bermudians last hope.
It has the usual and expected greeting cards and postcards, gifts, wrapping paper and all stationery supplies you can think of. You will have to see it to believe how much you can find at Robertson’s Drug Store and how well-stocked this rather large shop is. Here, toys of all kinds, even unusual ones, sit next to beach towels and accessories, health and beauty products, candles, candys, all sort of seasonal items, fine china mugs and beakers, scarves, purses and many more accessories.
In fact, Robertson’s Drug Store is not just the best pharmacy in Bermuda, it is also on eof the best shops of the island. For example, this is the best place for those looking for a variety of newspapers and magazines. The shop even stocks an impressive range of foreign publications as well as many Bermuda-themed books making it a prime destination for any visitors, especially those boarding at St. George. The list of everything sold by the drug store would be far too important to be exhaustively named here but to give an example of its eclectic stock, you can even find English chocolates and Cuba cigars!
At Robertson’s, they also think about the seniors and offer them a 10% discount storewide on the third Saturday of every month. Although this promotion doesn’t apply to prescriptions, tobacco items, newspapers and magazines, it is this type of attitude that makes Robertson’s Drug Store a pillar of St. George’s community.
Of course, Robertson’s is open every day all year round, from 8am to 7.30pm weekdays and Saturdays and from 4pm to 6pm on Sundays.
