Fayetteville-based Collier Drug Stores Inc. is 106 years old and still in growth mode.

Owner and President Mel Collier said the business has signed a lease to open its 10th location at 260 S. Gleneagle Drive in Cave Springs. Brett Hash owns the multitenant commercial building. A dental practice and a veterinary services provider are existing tenants.

The Collier store will be a full-service location with a drive-thru lane, gift items, free delivery, point-of-care testing and a full range of vaccination options.

“We’re quite excited about the community there,” Collier said.

The Collier family has become a four-generation staple of healthcare in Northwest Arkansas. Collier Drug Stores has been at its flagship store on Dickson Street in downtown Fayetteville since 1950 but traces its roots to the Fayetteville square in 1917.

Collier became the operations manager in 1998 and sole owner in 2007.
