HeyHey it's Wednesday!
I'm going to take you downtown, to one of Auburns favorite historic places!
It has been a tradition since 1896 and is located at toomers corner downtown Auburn.
The History behind the wonderful Toomers Drugs:
"When Toomer’s first started in 1896, it was a little beacon of a business on a mostly deserted street. The drugstore was founded by Sheldon Toomer, known as “Shel” by most. Shel was a halfback on Auburn’s 1st football team. He graduated from Auburn with both a degree in agriculture and pharmacy, and later went on to represent Lee County in the Alabama House of Representatives. The business began with a $500 loan, which allowed Shel to enter the drugstore business with his stepfather, Lazarus. He had no idea at the time how important his little drugstore would become to Auburn fans worldwide."
War Eagle Everyone!
