A Phoenicia icon has been on the market since early April, with pharmacist Marty Millman contemplating retirement after 34 years in business at the Phoenicia Pharmacy. Millman, about to turn 78, is selling both the building, with an asking price of $395,000, and the business, also priced at $395,000, in the hope that he can find a buyer who will keep a pharmacy in operation at the site.

The Gordon Brothers Pharmacy operated for several years on the south side of Phoenicia’s Main Street, where Ruth Gale Realty is now located. Phillip and Joe Gordon built the present pharmacy building in 1950. When the Millmans arrived, they rented half of the building at first, then bought it from the Gordons in 1981. The Head-to-Toe Shop sold ladies’ clothing in the other half until that shop folded, when proprietor Dorothy Cutrone went to work for the pharmacy.
