DescriptionNo print 2004. West side of the square north of Hainline Way. Ford Hopkins was a Macomb landmark from May 15, 1930, until May 24, 2011. Originally owned by John N. ‘Newt' Albright, the drugstore passed on to his son John N. 'Jay' Albright Jr in 1963 at John Albright Sr's retirement, and then was purchased by Rick Crossett in 1987. Ford Hopkins was a chain of drugstores that began in 1930, with 300 locations in Illinois, Iowa and Indiana. At one time the soda fountain counter had been made of marble. According to a Macomb Daily Journal article from 1987, when the state started setting sanitary regulations, they converted the counter to stainless steel.
