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.

On March 9, 2016, the White House announced that Burlington, Vermont received the designation of TechHire City. The City of Burlington and BTV Ignite, a multi-institution tech partnership, has rallied broad support from local workforce intermediaries, education and training providers, and employers, and employer associations to improve career pathways for tech jobs. Working within the White House’s TechHire Initiative model, Burlington’s public-private collaborative will train and place 75 tech workers in 2016 and seek to train and place 400 tech workers through 2020.https://www.cctv.org/watch-tv/programs/city-burlington-named-white-house-techhire-city#
