Burnham Drugs in Moss Point has been a local favorite since 1902. Founded by Pharmacist, K.W. Burnham. John and Wendy McKinney purchased the store in 1991 and have since added five more locations in South MS, four of which are in Jackson County, one in George County, with the most recent location in Biloxi

John and Wendy also offer medical equipment and supplies through Burnham’s HME located in Lucedale and Moss Point. Infusion Therapy is available on site in the Moss Point Vital Care’s private Infusion Suites and through the in home service brought to southern MS and Al. Vital Care also provides much needed compounding.

“We have one of the premier gift departments in our area”, noted Wendy, “including Vera Bradley, Ronaldo Jewelry, Trollbeads, Lillie & Laura Bracelets, Waxing Poetic, Yankee Candle and Tyler Candle, Lampe Berger, Fenton Art Glass and much more.” The Moss Point location still has the traditional soda fountain which serves breakfast, lunch and homemade milkshakes.

“Burnham Drugs is a family-owned business where we treat everyone like family. We have a regular crowd that comes in every afternoon to have coffee and discuss politics, sports, the weather, or who knows what else,” said Wendy.

“Our pharmacists have been recognized for their service to the profession and to the community in many ways, but most importantly people know we will be here for them.” Wendy added, “Our slogan is, ‘A century of service, a lifetime of caring.’ It is not just something we say, but how we conduct our business.” –
