Rexall Stores, formerly called United Drug Co., had their own brands of pencils —
It looks like they changed their Old Colony brand to Cascade, perhaps because Cascade is a peppier name. Yet the old-style lettering remained.

I have a couple of these. Once again made of extruded wood. I am sure most pencil enthusiast hate the extruded wood. I love them and they make up most of my collection.
