“Chicken Salad on white, tea, half sweet and half not” is how Mary Eason identifies Dr. Billy Nessmith when he walks in The Soda Shoppe located inside the Medical Center Pharmacy. Eason is one of three full-time employees at The Soda Shoppe and Dr. Nessmith has been eating at the little nine table restaurant twice a week for 40 years. That tradition, however, is about to end.
