As a little girl, Taylore Clark used to run up and down the aisles of Bob Clark’s Pharmacy in Havelock.

Her grandparents operated the iconic store for a half century until 2008.

Now, the building has reopened as Clark’s Antiques, Art and Collectables with Taylore Clark at the helm.

The new store held a grand opening Saturday, welcoming residents back into the 14,000 square-foot space that was the heart and soul of the city for so long.

"It feels good being in here. I just feel very happy and it’s a great thing," Clark said Saturday. "I grew up here in the aisles. I worked here and ran the soda fountain. I just grew up here. This is my childhood."

Her grandfather came by Saturday and said he was proud of Taylore for using the space and keeping it in the family.

"She’s a nice girl. She deserves it," the 94-year-old said.
