H&W Drug Store was started in the lower 9th ward in 1963 by Sterling J. Henry and Wesley J. Watkins at 5525 N. Galvez. In 1991, we moved across the street to 2034 Caffin Avenue.
Mr. Watkins passed away in 1991, and in 1999 Mr. Sterling J. Henry retired and his son Ruston Henry took over. In August 2005, we were temporary closed as a result of Hurricane Katrina. We re-opened November 1, 2011, in The USA Market in New Orleans East. On March 26, 2013 H&W Drugs moved inside of the Sterling Farms Supermarket. H&W Drug Store continues the long tradition of fast, friendly, and courteous service.
