Coverage of the reopening of Frank's Pharmacy in the "Brownstoner Queens" on August 20, 2014:
Frank’s Pharmacy Will Open in a New Jackson Heights Location
Earlier this summer, we reported that Frank’s Pharmacy would relocate in Jackson Heights after amassive fire hit the Bruson Building on 37th Avenue. (Over 50 small businesses located within the building were lost in total.) Frank’s new location is 77-01 37th Avenue, on the corner of 77th Street. Now the New York Daily News reports the location will open on September 20th.
The News writes that Frank Buonagurio, who’s owned the pharmacy for 23 years, contemplated early retirement after the fire. A broker contacted him about the new space at 77th Street and 37th Avenue, which previously operated as a pharmacy, and he decided to move in. He’ll occupy 2,300 square feet on the ground floor with 2,300 square feet of basement storage space.
