Description: 

The drugstore is one of the shops on the Square around the courthouse. Vardaman comments on "the two big glasses of soda water, red and green" set as a display in its window: "Two men could not drink them. . . . Two cows could not" (250). Dewey Dell visits the drugstore twice: during the day to get abortion medicine and after dark to "get the rest of her treatment" from MacGowan while Vardaman sits outside waiting for her.
