I was in a hurry and in need of a belated birthday gift for a friend I was meeting for dinner and decided to stop in Bigelow's. It was late and I wasn't sure at first if they were closed or not but the ladies at the cosmetic counter were so helpful and recommended just the right thing-the eucalyptus shave foam and the mentha body cleanser. They even wrapped it in a black and white signature Bigelow box. Besides being extremely knowledgeable and helpful, the associates at Bigelow's were genuinely helpful and not phony. This was and still is my favorite go to neighborhood shop. It's nice to see that while other places are folding, Bigelow's is still around and I attribute that to their amazing staff.

Family run. Huge selection. Knowledgeable staff. Carefully chosen items. The pharmacy is unparalleled and they have FREE delivery. Excellent record keeping so they have a history of what you've filled.

I always find the right thing here; selection is not equaled anywhere else. As for service, yesterday I wandered one time around the store myself and appeared lost, so Colleen offered her help. She patiently helped me find 3 different

Bigelow has been open for over 150 years and is family run! It attracts both the young village crowd and anyone smart enough to be in the know. They have everything here from name brand beauty products (Mason- Pearson Bumble & Bumble, etc) , perfumes, soaps, candles, jewelry, Italian candies & throat drops, and traditional pharmaceuticals. Bigelow also has their own line of products which I highly recommend. Try their shave cream! The decor looks exactly the way an old pharmacy/ apothecary should. It's a unique place and they staff is fantastic! Fun fact: Mark Twain used to buy his toothpaste there!!!

PROS: Fantastic Pharmacy and unique products
CONS:

No wonder this place has been in business for 160 years! Interesting products (such as 'new car scent' and 'funeral home' perfume) line up the shelves, and "real" new yorkers seem to shop here for the bizarre little things Bigalows

The store has a great selection but the exuberant prices will keep me away. I can get the same brands for much ceaper elsewhere. Looks like a cheap store, but don't be fooled.

Bigelow is the best pharmacy in the city. If, despite the zillion things they already have on display, you need something they don't carry, they will happily order it for you, and possibly start stocking it. The selection of high-end bath,

This woody, ancient-looking Greenwich Village pharmacy is a far cry from the Duane-Reades and Rite-Aids of the world. It's tiny but efficiently run, with a wide array of beauty products, shaving accessories, and creative gifts up front.
