K&B Drug Store Earrings

The K&B logo is part of the Ain't Dere No More® Collection. In 1905, The Katz & Besthoff families went in business together to create a drugstore called, "Katz & Besthoff". The first drug store was on Canal Street. Eventually, the name of the drugstore was shortened to, "K&B" and the stores spread across the region. K&B's purple shopping bags and signs would become an iconic part of everyday New Orleans life. Rite Aid bought the beloved K&B chain in 1997. Today, many native New Orleanians lovingly refer to the color purple as, “K&B purple”.
