Since the dawn of science, alchemists and pharmacists have been locked in a bitter rivalry—the former attempts to turn base materials into gold, while the latter works tirelessly to melt gold into useful medicines. Support the struggle against alchemists with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of goods at the East Side Prescription Center. A variety of pharmaceutical products, general merchandise, and liquor fill the aisles at East Side Prescription Center, an independent pharmacy masterminded by knowledgeable pharmacists and health consultants. Raid the storehouse's fine wares, such as 51-packs of plastic forks or spoons ($1.29), Heinz ketchup ($2.29), Lysol air freshener ($2.99), and an extensive wine collection.
The Yankee magazine called East Side Prescription Center one of Rhode Island's best local secrets.
- Though often described as "medicine," the alcohol products here aren't intended as such. An exceptional world wine collection ($10-$20 a bottle), with knowledgeable staff, great descriptions, and tastings. Don't miss the chilled microbrews. – Yankee magazine
