Our front door may be closed for walk-in service but the 501 Pharmacy team is still here for you! Here’s a look at what is happening this month. Make sure you are following us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for the latest on store hours, product availability, ice cream pick up, and more.
We are currently open for drive-thru service Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. until noon. We are closed on Sundays.
Our staff is using masks and gloves and limiting contact at the drive-thru. We can assure you that we are taking every precaution to ensure the safety of our employees and customers.
Maple View Farm Ice Cream
We are selling pints and quarts of Maple View Farm ice cream through the drive-thru! All orders will be taken over the phone between 9 a.m. and noon, Monday through Friday. Simply give us a call at 984-999-0501 and let us know what time you will be coming to pick up your ice cream. Pickups will be from 1 until 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Prepay via credit card, give us your name at the drive-thru and we’ll retrieve it from the freezer. We will not be accepting orders on Saturdays as we close at noon.
Supplies such as masks, isopropyl alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, aloe vera gel, and gloves are on limited supply. We are doing everything we can to keep them in stock. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to keep up to date with what we have in stock.
Get Your “Hanitizer”
Thanks to one of my fellow pharmacist friends, we have more liters of “Hanitizer” available and we are bottling these as fast as we can!
If we are out of the compounded “Hanitizer,” we should have in some commercially available hand sanitizer ready for purchase.
Purchase Your Over-the-Counter Items at the Drive-Thru
Allergy medicines, creams, ointments, cough medicines, and more. You can get all of your over-the-counter medications just by swinging through the drive-thru.
Cackalacky + Elderberry
Also at the drive-thru, you can stock up on your favorite Cackalacky items including their nuts and hot sauce.
While you are here, ask us to grab you some of our Elderberry products. If you are looking for more ways to fight colds, the flu, and to strengthen your immune system, purchase elderberry syrup from The Elderberry Lady and now Jenn’s Ultimate Elderberry Syrup, both sold at 501 Pharmacy.
Special “Drug Bug” Delivery
If you are in need of prescriptions or over-the-counter medications prescribed during your telemedicine visit, we’ll deliver your medicines free-of-charge within Chapel Hill and Pittsboro. In most cases, we can deliver the medications to you on the same day.
We are still providing vaccinations as recommended by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. If you are in need of a vaccination, please give us a call at 984-999-0501.
Donate to PORCH
We are collecting food donations for Briar Chapel PORCH – a grassroots hunger-relief organization. Donations go to the Chatham OutReach Alliance (CORA) food pantry and our local schools. Donations are picked up every Friday. Please consider donating if you are able.
CORA accepts donations of shelf-stable foods — canned fruit/vegetables, boxed cereals, rice, pasta, baking mix and shelf-stable specialty items (drink mix, coffee, tea, pancake mix, condiments, herbs and spices, ethnic foods, other pantry staples, etc.). They also accept paper products and some personal hygiene items like toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, soap, disposable razors, etc. For a list of the items that are most needed and the items that we usually have stocked, click here.
Thank You, Chatham Journal

Stay safe and healthy! We look forward to seeing you back inside the pharmacy soon. As always, call us at 984-999-0501 with any questions or concerns you have.
