Alex Sidie

A mural by Pat Benson of Alex Sidie, a local pharmacist in Bothell for many years who was known for his acts of kindness, including filling prescriptions even when families couldn't afford to pay. Sidie was known throughout the community as a kind and considerate businessman, who would personally deliver prescriptions to his ailing customers, even in the middle of the night. The pharmacy was also famous for the cats that he kept at the store. The building was originally Sidie Pharmacy, constructed and opened in 1962 by Alex Sidie. That pharmacy was famous for the cats that Sidie kept at his store. Towne Bank took over this building when Alex Sidie passed away in 1998. Towne Bank became Banner Bank in 2001. Significantly altered, the only recognizable features of the former structure are the brick pilasters which bookend the building facade. A cut-out mural of Alex Sidie and a cat is visible behind the tree trunk.
