Around Town


Hi Readers! Welcome to another edition of Around Town.

The search was on this weekend to refill an over-the-counter product prescribed to me by my medical provider. Needless to say, this mission was not scheduled into my time allotted for personal chores on the weekend.

After inquiring at several major chain-store pharmacies, I was advised to try Total Care Pharmacy on Crosby Avenue. JACKPOT! Not only did they have this item (and came from behind the counter to get it for me), they immediately ordered additional supplies to keep on hand! This, of course, just proves the theory that it pays to shop locally (in our local mom and pop stores). Thanks, again for the fantastic service you provide to this community.
