Mike and Kelvin of Garden Apothecary
Many residents in the neighborhood were petty upset by the recent closing of Clinton Apothecary, a family-owned business that had been operating at 420 Clinton Street for the past 80 years.
Well, for all those who were saddened by the loss of yet another independently-owned pharmacy in Carroll Gardens, there is some good news. Just before the holidays, Garden Apothecary opened its doors at 525 Court Street.
Garden Apothecary is owned by Kings Pharmacy on Hudson Street in Manhattan, which, according to its web site, is one of the "few independent pharmacies that is as big as a chain."
Not only will Garden Apothecary feature a full pharmacy, it offers everything that Rite Aid on Smith Street and CVS on Court Street offer, but in a much nicer layout and with friendlier service. And they will deliver. The store is stocked with homeopathic products, personal care products, as well as gifts, cards, and snacks.
It is a welcome addition to the neighborhood and especially to that end of Court Street. I am sure it wil thrive.
