Right in the heart of town. All your needs are here, especially if you left something at home! One time we were in town, rained unexpectedly and ran right in to get some inexpensive umbrellas!

If you forgot something in your vacation packing, chances are the drugstore will have it & You won't have to venture to Holland to find it. Also, it is loaded with souvenirs, cards, wind socks, chimes & beach toys. So much fun to just browse...More

The store is large and carries a large variety of interesting items. It has a soda fountain in the back and serves good ice cream. This is a store not to be missed!

The shop is a small pharmacy style store with some local souvenirs. But the soda fountain at the back is super fun. It's a fun throw back kinda place and I recommend you check it out.

A trip down memory lane. Loved the soda parlor at the far back of the store. Root Beer Floats and Strawberry Malt for my Sweetoe

When I was growing up every drug store had a soda fountain, and they all offered ice cream sodas. Now it's very hard to find a descent ice cream soda anywhere. Saugatuck Drugstore makes the best authentic ice cream sodas I have had in years....More

Almost missed the Soda Fountain. Happened to wander through the store and, lo and behold, there was Hudsonville Ice Cream being sold. Every time we go to Michigan to see family we seek out Hudsonville Ice Cream. The Cherry chocolate chip is the best!

Great to see a drugstore in town, especially if you need something quick! Seemed to have everything, too. The staff was helpful and friendly. Clean and well stocked. There are t- shirts and souvenirs, also.

This Old Fashioned Soda Fountain is a staple for locals in Saugatuck. It has been here since 1913. It is in the back of the drug store. Coincidentally, kiddie-corner to Kilwins. What is great about this soda fountain, is that they do make old-fashioned sodas with heaps of ice-cream - and local Hudsonville Ice-Cream. Even better, this is a hidden gem for families in this ever-so growing, expensive tourist town (I am from nearby Grand Rapids....and FYI...the reason I had so many reviews last year, I took a year off to explore my #1 passion -traveling- from my real job (litigation); so if you would like an attorney turned writer/traveler/reviewer, I would be a great fit. But why it is a hidden gem for families: the Soda Fountain has hot dogs, fries, small $3 pizzas, pretzels - all the small stuff little kids love and that would make them happy after a hot day on the boat or at the beach, along with a small ice-cream cone or old-fashioned root-beer float. It's a great place.
