ACEDIA, CT – If you need a prescription filled, go see Dr. Shrugg. But if you want interest or concern, go elsewhere.
Shrugg’s Drugs is a full service pharmacy and convenience store, and by all accounts the service is top-notch. Customers invariably praise Shrugg’s expertise and knowledge in pharmaceuticals. He doesn’t want to hear about it, though.
“Yeah, don’t try to chat him up about your ailment if you’re after a kind word,” said Jen Teague, who was picking up a refill. “It is the place to come if you want to get your meds and go.”
Several times a week, someone will attempt to make small talk or garner a little extra advice about their illness. While Dr. Shrugg is willing to answer questions about medications, he is quick to curtail run-on conversations and get back to work.
