residents of Middle Village, and half dozen other area residents love to shop/pick up their medicines and dealing with a friendly group of neighborhood employees to boot, besides dealing with the owner himself, Vito Columbo, head pharmacist.

Here you walk into Columbo's Pharmacy and he greets each and every customer like a cop on the beat. Personal touch that has dwindled down over the years.
