It was extra hot today and I needed a cool drink. Rite Aid at 1912 Pearl Street was a good choice since I also needed band-aids. The Rite Aid was just like every other Rite Aid, but the cashier was particularly upbeat and delightful. That makes such a difference!

In doing a little research about today’s new place of the day, I discovered that the company originally opened in 1918 as a small ice cream shop. The family owned business has a wonderful variety of candies including any kind of old fashioned chocolate that you could want. Their customer service is top notch and the place just has a comfortable feel about it. It is very much worth the trip!
The property is located at 924 Martin Luther King Jr. Way, Tacoma; 253-272-8504.
