It’s Bob Geiger Trivia Time

Bob Geiger, owner of Geiger’s Rexall Family Pharmacy, is hanging up his mortar and pestle after 52 years in business. The economy, competition with chain stores and a stroke in May led to the decision, Geiger said today. Wearing a Hawaiian shirt under his lab coat, Geiger – now largely recovered from his ailment – is sizing up retirement with mixed feelings.
“It’s kind of a shock,” he said. “The big shock will be getting up in the
morning and deciding if I want to go out and weed the flowers or go for a walk.”

Geiger’s will hold a liquidation sale on Thursday. The pharmacy will remain open until customers have been able to transfer their prescriptions. The post office boxes will be moved to the main Port Orchard branch of the U.S. Postal Service
