The pharmacy that's been in the works on Park Place between Seventh and Flatbush is just about ready to open, and last night signage went up.
The no-frills Park Place Pharmacy is much smaller than the two competitors that are just steps away, Duane Reade and Kings. Whereas those behemoths sell just about everything under the sun, though, this one will be a lot more specialized.
Two neon signs dominate the back of the space; one says "Consultations" and the other says "Prescriptions." There are a couple coolers stocked with beverages, and a few racks on the two walls with soap, shampoo, lotions, and the like. Nothing too out of the ordinary.
There's certainly plenty of competition, but this seems to be to be almost like a pharmacist setting up a private practice. A man I spoke with who appeared to be the owner told me that it should be open within two to three weeks.
