Merz Apothecary

4716 N. Lincoln Ave.
Chicago , IL , United States http://merzapothecary.com/
(773) 989-0900

Established by pharmacist Peter Merz in 1875, this old-fashioned apothecary has been serving Chicago natives for more than a century. The flagship Lincoln Square location (the other is in the Loop) is set behind a wood-framed storefront lined with a row of stained-glass panels. Inside, beneath a gilded ceiling and delicate chandeliers, shoppers browse an immense selection of holistic and homeopathic products as well as personal care products like European soaps, all-natural cosmetics, and aromatherapy oils. Customers may also find such unusual items as white-peach-flavored Japanese toothpaste, unique herbal teas, and bubble bath jars wrapped with vintage French advertisements.
