GRACE COTTAGE’S MESSENGER VALLEY PHARMACY GROWING
GRACE COTTAGE’S
MESSENGER VALLEY
PHARMACY GROWING

When the Messenger Valley Pharmacy opened to the public on July 1, 1996, one full-time and one part-time pharmacist were on staff to fill less than 40 prescriptions per day. Almost nine years later, Grace Cottage now employs four full-time pharmacists who fill an average of 1,100 prescriptions each week. Excellent service, convenient hours, and fair prices have been contributing factors in the popularity of the Messenger Valley Pharmacy.

To accommodate this enormous increase in demand, changes are being made to improve the traffic flow within the pharmacy. A prescription drop-off area will be created where the cash register is currently located, and two new cash registers will be placed at a new counter. A private consultation room, where a pharmacist can answer any questions patients may have about their medications, will be created in part of the former Valley Health Council office (VHC has moved up Route 35—see story). The rest of the former office space will be used for storage.

The Messenger Valley Pharmacy is open 9-5:30, Monday through Friday, and 9-2 on Saturday, with weekday hours expected to be expanded in the near future.
