What you need to know about the midtown chain that’s become a pharmacy of choice for everyone
A pharmacy in midtown Manhattan is becoming a pharmacy for everyone, and that includes people with special needs.
Kara-Bennett is a midtown New York City chain that specializes in prescription medications and a wide range of other products, including a few that are medically necessary, but not necessarily for everyday use.
The chain opened a pharmacy in Midtown on March 10.
The pharmacy opened to the public after a closed-door event with local health officials.
The chain is currently in its second year of operation, and now has more than 10,000 employees in six locations in New York, New Jersey, Delaware and Pennsylvania.
The company says it has more openings to come, but for now the pharmacy has just a few more locations to open.
Kazuhiko Shiozawa, executive director of the New York Association of Community Pharmacists, said it was very important to open a pharmacy as soon as possible, and Kara-Betts is a great example of what he described as “a great business model.”
“You have a huge population that are at high risk of not getting their medication in the way.
We’re all at the mercy of the weather,” Shiozonawa told ABC News.”
So I think there is an urgency to make sure we have a full range of medicine and a variety of products in our pharmacy,” he said.
Karin Jaffe is the managing director of Kaleidoscope, a New York nonprofit that supports families in need.
Kaleidsoscope is partnering with the New Jersey-based Midtown Pharmacy in partnership with the nonprofit.
Jaffe said the chain has been working with the Midtown Health Alliance, a local non-profit that serves families with special medical needs.
“It’s been great, it’s really helped us tremendously.
I have been working for months, and I just wanted to make the community more aware of it,” Jaffe told ABC news.
Jaffe said she thinks Kara-Bs’ opening will give the company more customers and more options to reach people who are less able to access medication.
“Kara has a good understanding of the market and the market needs us to be there,” Jaffa said.
“They have a lot of patients who can’t get their medication, but they have a good pharmacy,” she added.
“I think it’s good to have an open space, and you have the opportunity to get to know your neighbors and see what their needs are,” Jafaa said.
In addition to Kara-Beers, Kaleidy’s offerings include some of the best-selling prescription drugs in the United States, including Percocet, Celebrex, Celecoxib, Celefim, Nexium and others.
“The patients who are going to come in and shop here are going for what they need,” Jaskowski said.
“And I think they’ll be satisfied with what they get.”
Kara’s open shop in MidTown is a testament to how far the company has come in its mission to serve the community, Shioy said.
