Ian Ginsberg, president of C.O. Bigelow Apothecaries, discusses the history of his iconic business—and how it has remained relevant for 176 years.
For many the word “apothecary” may trigger romantic images of cobblestone streets and hand-labeled tinctures custom-made to cure ailments. But though C.O. Bigelow—the oldest apothecary in America—has its roots firmly entrenched in those bygone days, it has also admirably evolved and grown to keep up with the times. Today, the company continues to wow customers with its well-edited selection of products—including its own line and imports from around the world—a personalized in-store experience and stellar staff members.
