C. O. Bigelow (New York state) : The oldest surviving apothecary–pharmacy in the United States.


(USKings.us) C.O. Bigelow Apothecaries is an American pharmacy currently owned by Ian Ginsberg. C.O. Bigelow was founded in 1838 in New York's Greenwich Village and is the oldest surviving apothecary–pharmacy in the U.S.A.

Limited Brands had an agreement to open and operate other stores bearing the Bigelow name, which were operated as upscale beauty and skin care stores to compete with other stores such as Sephora and Neiman Marcus. However, all of these stores were closed, leaving only the original shop. Certain products from the line are sold in Bath and Body Works stores throughout the United States.

Due to its longevity and popularity, C.O. Bigelow was honored with a Village Award from the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation in 2002.

There was formerly a chain of stores; however, the only store still operating is the original Sixth Avenue store in Greenwich Village. C.O. Bigelow products remain available on the company's Web site and at Bath & Body Works as well.
