Thompson Chemists is a community retail store located on Thompson Street in Manhattan. It is a place where individuals from the area come to share their lives with others in the neighborhood. Over the decades we have had a unique variety of residents from the area support the existence of a retail store where buying items across the counter is secondary to the positive interaction experienced with other shoppers and employees. Many people have said that coming to our store is a type of therapy that helps them get through a difficult time. We feel the same way about our community. Seeing customers smile and let their hair down is an accomplished feeling that is unique in this impersonal world.
