March 27, 1985: A look back at Buffalo's drug store chains of the '80s

Thirty years ago this week, Fay’s Drugs and Owl Drugs had a combined 26 locations in Western New York, and both had ads in The News.

Owl Drugs was a chain operated by the Arthur family, which still owns and operates independent pharmacies in the area.

Fay’s was a regional chain based in Syracuse. Fay’s was bought out by Eckerd in 1996, which was in turn bought out by Rite Aid in 2007.
