After 71 Years, Southern Indiana’s Iconic Butt Drugs is Closing
An iconic Southern Indiana pharmacy has announced that it will be closing for good.
Last year, I wrote an article about Butt Drugs in Corydon, Indiana. It's a locally owned pharmacy that catches everyone's attention by its name alone. Butt Drugs has been in business for 71 years, but unfortunately, the pharmacy has decided that it will be closing very soon.
For those who don't know about Butt Drugs, let me give you a brief rundown. Butt Drugs is a local pharmacy in Corydon, Indiana with a funny name as well as some funny products. Butt is a family name, and Butt Drugs is a third-generation family pharmacy established in 1952. According to their website:
Our pharmacy, old-fashioned soda fountain, and gourmet confectionery, as well as unique and local beer, wine, & moonshine - are only a taste of our one-stop shop. Along with the vintage novelty of our store, we have apparel to recognize the uniqueness of our name.
Not only are they known for their low prices, the soda machine, Butt Shakes, and merchandise, but more importantly, their infamous commercial.
This commercial became so much of a hit that it even made its way to Ellen in 2010 in a segment that highlighted funny commercials.
Butt Drugs is Closing for Good
The owner of Butt Drugs in Corydon, Katie Beckort, announced that the iconic pharmacy will be closing on April 29th, according to WHAS11. Beckhort wrote a letter to customers announcing the closure, saying that the decision to close did not come lightly. In the letter, she wrote that changes with insurance reimbursements over the years were a leading factor in the pharmacy closing. You can read the full letter by clicking here.
