Chaney’s Pharmacy More than Medicine after 35 Years


Thirty-five years ago in 1980, two Ole Miss pharmacy graduates took over Chaney’s Pharmacy and Café and have since transformed it into more than your ordinary drug store.

IMG_0773Located on Bramlett Boulevard off of University Avenue, the pharmacy owned and operated by Laura and Brent Smith welcomes Oxford residents and visitors, families, friends and anyone in search of the perfect gift. The store includes a soda fountain that serves TCBY frozen yogurt and Ugly Mug coffee, a spa and salon service, extensive cosmetic and cologne collections, fine candies, greeting cards and even children’s toys.

Employee Melissa Atchley has been working at Chaney’s since August. She loves working at a place with such a friendly environment.

Chaney’s was voted “Oxford’s Best Pharmacy” in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011. The attention and hospitality the Smith’s give their costumers is a vital part of the store’s spirit and charm that separate it from other pharmacies in the area.
