It's a timeless tradition, tried and true. However their form of medication is one that may surprise you. The business model is a bit counter-cultural. It takes you back to post World War II. The United States was a military powerhouse. Chuck Berry was rockin' the house and local pharmacies were the place to be. "Oh man, you're not going to believe - it just came out of nowhere," says Jim Coker, owner of Rogersville Pharmacy. Out of no where, like getting prescribed laughter for your pain medication. Jim Coker, Owner Rogersville Pharmacy -- "You have a good one." But it's exactly how this retro-fitting, friendly, bow tying wearing pharmacist gets results. Sugar acts as the catalyst for transformation at this mom-and-pop pharmacy. "We like to use the word 'finesse' and make sure that this place looks really cool," says Jason Trent, 18, whose behind the counter at this soda fountain. "These guys run it," Coker admits. This front section sliver of Rogersville Pharmacy used to house sun-screen. "We wanted to do something different," Coker says. But is now used to brighten people's day, with a recently opened Soda Fountain and coffee shop. "Some people are really jealous that we work here," Trent says. These dapper men are well too young for nostaliga, but as for orders and customer service, the craft suits them well. Toni Norris manages the bakery at the nearby Apple Market. "The guys are real nice and are always ready to help you out." Coker had a crazy idea to purchase an old soda fountain on Ebay. , "I really like retro stuff." He thought they'd experiment on a whim. Little did he know, it was just what the doctor ordered. "It's really fun. Its hardly ever hard work. We always have a good time back here," says Trent. The soda fountain also delivers drinks to local businesses. Ironically enough though, as old fashioned as the business model is, they often do those deliveries in a Prius.
