The new Saegertown Pharmacy is open for business. Their hours are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. “I think having a pharmacy in Saegertown is a great idea,” said senior Emily Fry. “It’s very convenient.”
In addition to prescription refills, the store carries many other items including bandages, vitamins, and ice packs. Owner Robert Sweeney shared that as the store builds a client base, more items will be available.
A grand opening will be held on July 6 with games and face painting for the kids as well as hot dogs, chips, and drinks. There will be many giveaways and a few larger items including four bikes, two child and two adult, and a TV. Froggy radio will be broadcasting from 4-6 p.m. and all are welcome.
While the pharmacy is open, another Saegertown business is closing. Kristen’s Kookies has moved to Meadville to merge with Confections of a Cake Lover on Market Street.
“The move to Meadville has gone fairly smooth, a few bumps along the way but good for the most part,” said Kristen Boyles, the owner. According to Boyles, the location in Saegertown wasn’t working out for Kristin’s Kookies as most of her customers came in from other towns.
“I am still in business, just in a different location,” Boyles said. They are set for their ribbon cutting today, May 24.
