Prospering since the 1950’s
In 1917, a new building was built to the south of the original store with an archway opening between the two buildings. This is where Bulloch Drug is located. This store dealt mostly in clothing, dry goods, and other department store merchandise. The upstairs of the building was occupied by doctors and also served as the first hospital in Cedar City.
In 1927, another building was added to the north of the old original building. This was built originally for use as a post office, but that was canceled, so the space was then leased to the Safeway Grocery Store. In later years, Robert’s Furniture Store and State Bank of Southern Utah occupied the building. It is now our third store, Comforts of Home.
The south building that was built in 1917 became the Thornton Drug Store in 1934. In 1955, it then became Bulloch Drug. In the 1960s the store consisted of a café with a long soda fountain occupying most of the north wall along with a drug store.
Evan and Chris Vickers and their family purchased Bulloch Drug from Don and Sylvia Bulloch in January 1996 and purchased the buildings in January 1999. The Vickers decided to restore the front of Bulloch Drug to an old-fashioned soda fountain. Later on, they widened the opening between Bulloch Drug and The Wood N’ Lace Boutique combining the two stores into one. The Vickers then went on to lease the building on the north side of the Wood ‘N Lace Boutique, adding Comforts of Home.
In 2003, the Vickers expanded the Bulloch Drug family and opened a second pharmacy named, Township Pharmacy, located across from Cedar City Hospital. Kyle Rowley is the pharmacist that runs Township.
In 2017, the Vickers expanded into the old Golden Rule Store building through the north wall of Comforts of Home and opened, The Stork on Main, a unique children’s boutique. The Vickers Family now runs all four stores combined.
The Vickers Family would especially like to thank the many loyal customers who have allowed them to grow and prosper their businesses in Cedar City. Without our customers, the businesses would not exist. They are also very grateful to the many employees that have worked for them over the years. Some of the employees have actually worked longer in Bulloch Drug than even Evan and Chris. Tonya Petty and Jana Davis “came with the store” when they purchased it from Don and Sylvia and have continued to work there ever since. Over the years many, many college students have worked for the Vickers as they have attended SUU. Other employees have been homemakers looking for extra income and have used their unique talents to help the businesses grow. The Vickers have always tried very hard to create a “family atmosphere” for both their employees and their customers.
