We Remember the Kelley Pharmacy


I have fond memories of walking by this billboard on Bank Street in Burlington, Vermont with my dad, Robert Giroux, whom everyone knew as “Bob” the sign painter. This billboard was located just around the corner from what is now known as the “Church Street Marketplace”. My Grandfather, Victor Giroux, painted and lettered this wall for the Kelley Pharmacy back in the early 1950’s. He was an amazing artist and could paint on just about any substrate. Kelley Pharmacy prevailed through the 1980’s before moving their location to South Burlington. We are proud to be located at 22 Church Street as a “Third Generation” family business.
