McGill Drugs - Burlington, OK

I remember a “McGill Drugs” in Capron, Oklahoma run by Gene McGill’s Uncle Charles McGill, but I have never heard that there was also a “McGill Drugs” in Burlington, Oklahoma. This is very interesting item that I read in the Alva Review Courier, dated 2 August 2006.

Alva Review/Courier – “…..Burlington had several drug stores when it first began. One of those was the McGill Drug Store, according to historical information. The Burlington Confectionary operated many years although no one is certain when it opened. Pete Schupbach built that structure that is now owned by Marcel Gosselin for storage of his plumbing supplies. Some of the owners listed in the history books are: Harley Crowl, Harmon Campbell, Dr. Charles Shapiro, Mac Mullinox, John Alder, Ralph Kisling, Don Andrews, Frank Schupbach, George Michel, Marcine Diel, Herman “Breezy” Jones and Bob and Helen Hofer (1967-1981)…..”
