Meet Our In-Store Family, the Frank's Pharmacy Staff:
When we talk about Frank's Pharmacy being a family business, here is the reason: Frank’s twin sister, who joined the team at the very start. Grace had a long career in finance and initially came on board to balance the books. But she stayed — and she ended up balancing the team. When she is not grinding away at administrative tasks, Grace supports staff in both departments. She plays a pivotal role in all store matters.
Frank's Pharmacy is happy to welcome its new pharmacist, William Makolin, RPh. A graduate of St. John's University, Bill enjoyed a long and successful career working in independent New York City pharmacies. Then he became a beloved staff member of Maram Pharmacy, working there for eleven years until the store closed. Bill is thrilled to return to Jackson Heights as staff pharmacist at Frank’s Pharmacy. His caring manner, his expertise in health and homeopathy, and his long-standing relationship with Jackson Heights residents, make him a valuable addition to the Frank's Pharmacy family.
The visual merchandising artist of the store, Nidia is the mastermind behind the eye-catching seasonal displays and lovely gifts that keep bringing people back to the store. Her unerring tastes guarantee that Frank’s Pharmacy shelves will always be filled with splendid products. This loving and painstaking work also brightens the store atmosphere and makes shopping a pleasure. When not working, Nidia keeps busy as Mrs. Frank Buonagurio.
We consider Ceci the General of front-end operations here at Frank’s. When Frank has an idea for improving business, Ceci implements it immediately. In addition, Ceci keeps the store stocked with an awesome variety of over-the-counter and seasonal products, ensuring that quality remains our priority. Ceci has been maintaining our inventory and getting it all done since the beginning, when she joined the staff as the store opened in 1991. If you can't find what you’re looking for, just ask Ceci!
Born and raised in Jackson Heights, Natasha was a Frank's Pharmacy customer before she came on board eight years ago. She started as a technician in the pharmacy department and has since added matters of compliance and quality control to her job description. A tireless asset to our staff, Natasha has also taken a major role in helping us gear up for the Grand Reopening.
Patty joined our family early on in 1994 during the store's first years. She brings her matchless work ethic, indomitable spirit and heart of gold to Frank's every day. While Patty is primarily seen in the prescription department, she’s always happy to answer questions about anything. And if we don’t have something, she is happy to order it on the spot for you! Consider Patty your personal shopper here in Jackson Heights.
A true pharmacy department fixture, Sonia joined the Frank’s Pharmacy family of employees when they moved into their second Jackson heights location. Sonia's kind manner and efficient work have made her highly sought after by all pharmacy customers. No one can top her skills at assisting the pharmacist. While you will usually find Sonia busily typing away in the pharmacy department, don’t hesitate to just stop by and say hola! She’ll be glad you did.
First impressions are important. So, when you walk through the doors of Frank's Pharmacy for the first time, you want to see a friendly face. We offer three of them: Happy, Susan and Martha. This trio of friendly women not only directs the store traffic and operates the front register, but also will eagerly help you find the item you need. (If we don’t have it, they make sure Frank orders it!)
Martha, who is Sonia’s sister, has been a key member of the team for over 15 years. She started in the prescription department at the original location. Happy is marking her first year with us and brings to the job her ever-present smile and her multilingual skills, to the delight and convenience of our customers who speak Bengali and Hindi. Last but not least, our newest employee Susan offers diligence and warmth, which has quickly made her a valued member of the Frank’s Pharmacy family.

Our so-called "Stock Boys" do far more than just stock shelves. While new to our family, they have proven indispensable in a short time! These tech whizzes have mastered our computerized sales system. They also can be counted on to handle all the odds and ends that keep our operations running smoothly and our store looking great.
