|Bassam Amin. Pharmacist|
But amidst the Rite Aids and CVS', one family-owned pharmacy seems to not only survive, but thrive.
For the last six years, Bassam Amin, owner of Wycoff's Corner Pharmacy at 205 Court Street has been filling prescriptions for local residents and has offered vitamins, natural herbs and surgical equipment.
Since the space is rather small, Amin will be expanding into the storefront at 203 Court Street just across the street, which was vacated recently by Yemen Airways/ Arabian Horizons Travel.* The business will move as soon as work is completed.
Amin told me that the new store will provide him with double the space, which will allow him to fill more prescriptions and carry more items. Good for him. It can't be easy competing with all the chain stores.
He obviously is doing something right.
If you want to support a locally-owned pharmacy, give Wycoff's Corner Pharmacy a try.
*Just for an FYI, Yemen Airways/ Arabian Horizons Travel has moved to 6709 5th Avenue. Phone# 718 797 0906
