Pharmacy news from Maui Hawaii
Today's news brings a couple of interesting stories regarding pharmacies on Maui. Business is good for the drug market it would seem.
Right here in Paia Maui we will be getting a new pharmacy, which will be a welcome addition to the town's services. The Maui Clinic Pharmacy will be in the old Nagata Store on the Hana Highway, and will be open 7 days a week. In addition to the prescription department that is slated to open as early as the end of October, the store will also have soft drinks, snacks and tourist gifts as well as first-aid items.
In other news, the Walgreen's drugstore chain is buying four existing Maui pharmacies, currently three Valley Isle Pharmacy outlets (in Wailuku and Lahaina), and Lahaina Pharmacy. All current employees can expect to keep their jobs. The purchases mark the first Neighbor Island pharmacies for Walgreens, which opened its first Hawaii store last year on Oahu.
