SCHENECTADY, NY – Price Chopper Supermarkets will be closing the pharmacy in its Oswego store, 137 State Route 104, effective at 8 p.m. on March 22.
Patient prescriptions have been transferred to the nearby Rite Aid pharmacy and Price Chopper teammates will be working with patients to ensure no interruption in their health care.
“We are always reluctant to close a pharmacy. But, today, pharmacies rely on economies of scale and the ability to serve a large number of patients. Within some smaller geographic regions, consolidation is the best way to provide those economies,” said Kathy Bryant, Price Chopper’s vice president of pharmacy. “Most important to us now is the seamless transition of our patients to another pharmacy.”
