Pharmacy care and expertise
your family can trust.

For over four generations, the Thomas family has delivered unmatched pharmacy, compounding, and home medical equipment services extending across four Thomas Seashore Drugs pharmacies, and now our Apothecary St. James location. Thomas Seashore Drugs is one of the few independent, family-owned pharmacies along the coast that provides health expertise and customer service with a friendly, small-town feel.

When Ed Thomas’ great-grandfather opened the doors to his first pharmacy in North Carolina in 1902, he could not have imagined that more than a century later his legacy would extend across four community drugstores in North and South Carolina. As a young boy, Ed Thomas remembers the warmth that infused his family’s drug stores—the yearly Christmas parade down Main Street in Calabash, NC; late nights with his mother, Sandra, while book keeping; customers dropping in for a prescription and chatting for hours with his father about town happenings. Thomas Seashore drugstores have always been a place where, to quote a famous sitcom, “everybody knows your name.”

Today, Ed and Sandra Thomas, and their team of local pharmacists, continue to meet the needs of his customers and friends by offering a wide range of health and wellness services. We are proud to provide the best customer service on the Carolina coast, and consistently deliver the top-notch health information and education to you and your family.

In an era of online pharmacies and digital apps, the Thomas family provides a uniquely warm and personal customer experience. Because unlike the retail pharmacy chains and big box stores, when you shop under the umbrella of Thomas Seashore Drugs, we’ve got you covered.
