As of November 29, 2012 the Minersville Pharmacy opened on the corner of Sunbury and Front streets in Minersville, PA. The pharmacy, designed by Watkins Architect, was one of the few new shops and cafes that have opened within the downtown business district of Minersville.
The one-story building with a drive-through window and a 10-vehicle parking lot was a long time in the making for the owner, Carmen DiCello Sr. He spend three years searching for the right location for the pharmacy. During that time he found that many of the buildings in the area needed a lot of work leading to his decision to purchase three separate properties to create the single lot this pharmacy is now on.
The shelves are fully stocked at the pharmacy, but if there is an item you would like to see that is not on one of the shelves, Minersville Pharmacy has a suggestion box for their customers’ needs. In addition to the suggestion box, the pharmacy has access to getting any item for a customer within 24-hours. In a recent article published by a Pottsville Area newspaper pharmacy manager Carolyn Kushwarra stated, “Anything we don’t have, we can have it in the next day.”
