The Springfield Drug has been in business since June 21, 1977. 30 years ago, Keith Hentzen added on to the building and opened the old fashioned soda fountain. The building was originally a bank and still has its exposed brick walls and the money vault is open for all to see. Hundreds of antiques grace the store, most of them on the walls above and around the ice cream counter.
Almost every aspect of the store is unique. Keith’s love of antiques led him to a friend who shared that same interest. His friend searched and finally found a free 1930’s Brunswick soda fountain from a little store in Iowa. Keith still uses it today.
The cash register is old and loud, but this and other antique machines found around the store add character and make it a fun place to eat your favorite treats. But aside from just treats, Keith offers many pharmaceutical services, such as prescription refills and over the counter drugs. He also has isles of toys and candy for the kids, and everyday household items, making Springfield Drug Store a quick, fun place to pick up the things you need.
