Photos by Taylor Griffith/Journal Scene Sen. Graham visited several businesses around Hutchinson Square on Monday morning, including Guerin’s Pharmacy.


Unsuspecting patrons of local businesses got a surprise Monday afternoon as their lunches, haircuts and trips to the pharmacy were interrupted with the visit of U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham.

Mayor Bill Collins escorted the senator around historic downtown Summerville Monday afternoon. Sen. Graham spoke with shop owners and patrons alike, asking about the state of business and the economy. He also discussed the town budget with Mayor Collins.

They visited about 10 local businesses including Perfectly Frank’s, Tuesdies Salon, Edible Arrangements, Eva’s Restaurant, Maggie Rose and Guerin’s Pharmacy.

“How do they stay in business?” he asked of Guerin’s Pharmacy, which is the oldest continuously operating pharmacy in the State.

Mayor Collins cited quality service and repeat customers as the key to their success.

“What I want to know is could you start a small pharmacy like this in downtown Summerville today?” Sen. Graham said. “This is something special.”
