The store offers a variety of services including free delivery to all residents, 10 percent discount for seniors and veterans and free flavoring for kids’ medicines that include a free oral syringe and a special container.
“The flavoring and calibrated oral syringe ensures proper drug delivery with pediatric medicines and better compliance,” said Athanasatos.
The pharmacy also offers multilingual services, with more than 100 languages translated verbally and 15 languages in written form.
