SOUTH WEYMOUTH, MA…
The corner drugstore. To those under the age of 40, that term might not mean anything. Unless, of course, you grew up in Weymouth and visited Olden’s Pharmacy. There you experienced not only the place where you got your prescriptions filled, but a business that cares about its customers and gives back to its community through sports team sponsorships, scholarships and any number of charitable endeavors. For those efforts and more, Bill and Joan MacArthur and Paul Hackett, owners of Olden Pharmacy, have been named the recipients of The Smiling Neighbor award given by South Weymouth Dentist Dr. Richard Wolfert, DMD.
“As a local business, you want to give back to the community that you serve. Olden’s Pharmacy sets the bar very high for giving back,” said Dr. Wolfert, AKA “The Toothboss”, whose practice is located at 1121 Main Street. “What’s refreshing about the MacArthurs and the other owner, Paul Hackett, is they give back because they genuinely care about people in the community. For that, they are very deserving winners of our Smiling Neighbor award.”
Olden’s Pharmacy supports a number of efforts throughout Weymouth. That includes sponsoring teams in a number of sports—soccer, T-ball, basketball, baseball, and more. In addition, the Pharmacy sponsors such events as: Christmas in the Square; Mayor Kay’s Holiday Event; Clean up Day; Farmer’s Market; Weymouth Food Pantry. Olden’s Pharmacy is also a South Shore Hospital President’s Circle donor.
For being selected as the Smiling Neighbor, Bill, Joan and Paul had the choice of receiving a $50 gift card to Stockholders or a Sonicare Easy Clean model (they chose tooth brushes).
“Giving back to the community has been part of Olden’s since Joan and Paul’s father Fred opened the pharmacy back in 1952,” said Bill MacArthur. “As a cancer survivor, it’s quite easy to continue that tradition. Speaking for Joan and Paul, we appreciate the recognition from Dr. Wolfert.”
The Smiling Neighbor award is given out on a quarterly basis to citizens of Weymouth going above and beyond the call of duty for their fellow citizens.
