[UPDATE (12/24/06): The pharmacy will be called Bridge Apothecary, located mid-block on Jay Street]
The deal to bring a non-chain pharmacist at Two Trees Management fell through to occupy the space at 70 Washington this summer, but I’ve heard from a reliable source that a pharmacy is very close to being signed to occupy a space on Jay Street. That pharmacy is Concord Chemist, a full service pharmacy that carries a complete line of perfumes, cosmetics, hair care products, natural vitamins, homeopathic remedies, and surgical and medical supplies. Their website states that they even carry sunglasses from “the latest fashion lines from Gucci, Ralph Lauren, Valentino, Christian Dior, and Max Mara.” Their first location is at 485 Madison Avenue in Manhattan (between 51st and 52nd Streets). The Dumbo Brooklyn location would be their second.
This is a much needed pharmacy in Dumbo and located centrally so residents from Dumbo and Vinegar Hill have a place to fill their prescriptions and get the latest in skin care products.
