On Monday, December 19th, Kapler's Pharmacy in Beach Haven celebrated their 65th Anniversary with a street-side party in front of their store. The celebration included Holiday entertainment, snacks, sales, and giveaways.  They also had a train ride for kids of all ages through the streets of Beach Haven.

As a kid growing up in Beach Haven, Kapler's has always been a fixture in downtown Beach Haven. We would go there all the time for candy and gum, and it was the only Pharmacy in Beach Haven, making it a must stop for parents as well.  Even though many things have changed over the years in Beach Haven, it is nice to still have the downtown area remain relatively unchanged.  Some of the stores may have changed names (anyone remember Gerber's next to the old Beall's Supremarket?), or have gone through a make over like the Marlin Club (used to be The Village Pub) and Buckalew's.  Yet through all of the changes, Kapler's is still the Pharmacy and Convenience Store at the corner of Centre St and Bay Ave.

I was in Kapler's a few weeks ago, and it is still as I remember it as a kid in the 70s and 80s. It still has the wood paneling walls, and everything is pretty much in same spot is has been for at least the last 30 years.  

In today's world of corperations and super convenience stores, it is wonderful to see a small, historic and independant store like this survive. I could not imagine Beach Haven without the door on the corner of the building, that sits on the corner of Centre St., that leads to Kapler's Pharmacy. Congrats on your anniversary!
