Hayes Barton Pharmacy - Now


Located just down the street from the Rich Realty Group office, Hayes Barton Pharmacy has been open and serving the greater Five Points area for nearly 100 years! First opened in 1929, the small pharmacy was located within the Flat Iron Building and was originally an extension of the Person Street Pharmacy in Oakwood.

The Gattis brothers who started Person Street Pharmacy and opened Hayes Barton Pharmacy eventually sold the business in the 60’s. After that, the store began to flourish with great customer service and efficiency, qualities that have not wavered despite ownership changing hands a few more times of the last 50+ years.

Why We Love It

Today, the Pharmacy continues to offer residents of Raleigh with “a personalized approach to pharmacy care, at a comparable price to other pharmacies, in a convenient location in our community.”

The historic building provides a feel of nostalgia for the Five Points neighborhood, and helps to establish our strong sense of community in Raleigh.

When you’re done picking up a prescription or browsing the store’s aisles, stop around the corner at the ,,Hayes Barton Café and Dessertery for more nostalgia and a slice of Peanut Butter Mousse Pie or any of their famous, award-winning dessert options.
