Drug Shoppe Pharmacy is a reliable little store and a great alternative to Rite Aid for most items. It is located on Frederick Douglass Blvd. between 112th and 113th street directly next door to 5 and Diamond. They have more than you would imagine stocked on their shelves considering the limited space. The other day I was looking around the neighborhood for a specific medical supply item for a friend and nobody had it. Low and behold Drug Shoppe Pharmacy not only had it but in different sizes at a very low price. Every time I pass by to pick up a quick item on my way home, the employees are very nice and it feels neighborhoodie and personable.
These smaller stores are important to support and in my opinion are very valuable. Drug Shoppe opened eight years ago in 2003 and it is independently owned and run. If you are not familiar with the store or you are new in the neighborhood, just pass by and pop in someday and check out what they have. Believe me you will find something you need and at the same time you will be supporting one of the Mom & Pop stores.
