There are still times when we are surprised. When there hasn’t been an orchestrated media campaign with every glossy magazine. When Thrillist hasn’t been asked to hand out a chest bump and a high-five. They are few and far between. Welcome SugarPill to the Hill. Even you smarty pants know-it-alls who already knew.
Here’s the note from a texting tipster we received Wednesday night about the newly sprouted “dispensary of medicinal & culinary herbs & spices, gourmet salts, chocolates, cocktail bitters & pantry essentials, and eclectic mercantile”:
sugar pill just opened like 20 min ago bhind blitz arts looks pretty neat. finally a new place on the hill to get bath stuff hopefully itll fill the bliss void!
In addition to containing one of our favorite instances of Hill malapropism ever, this text was exciting at CHS headquarters because we had only heard a few tiny whispers about something new on the Pine side of the Broadway Building. Now, of course, the information is pouring in.

SugarPill is a dispensary of medicinal & culinary herbs & spices, gourmet salts, chocolates, cocktail bitters & pantry essentials.
We specialize in locally and ethically sourced products, and curate an unique mercantile of items for your body, your home and your imagination.
SugarPill will be carrying some locally made goods including those of Tutta Lou Press (studio is located at 23rd and Cherry). Some of the offerings from Tutta Lou Press include handprinted Valentine’s Day Cards that are letterpressed on a 2000 pound, 1920’s printing press.
Rollinger also says SugarPill has “a pretty swell interior.” CHS hasn’t been inside but our photographer Sy Bean swung by Wednesday night to say hello. Sy says no sign is up yet so you might have to poke around awhile before you find the shop.
