i finally got in to see the new parkway drugs store in north utica last night and i have no complaints but the family owned aspect of it with the chiffy/femia group actually working in store allows them to make sure things are done right...

This will give Rite Aid a run for it. Their prescription department is awful. They cannot find a f/t pharmacist. That should tell you something. I am glad Parkway Drugs came to NU.

Had same problem with rite aid went in for meds and pharmacy was closed. The store was still open for a few hours but they said all rite aid pharmacies close early now . ALL OF THEM !

If i want to go to just a store i can go to X-tra mart or price chopper.or any where else. No I wanted a phamacy. But they close early.

I am thinking of ending my 20 years as a Rite Aid pharmacy customer. I like going to the same place, but now that Rite Aid has become a monopoly, they obviously don't want to pay a pharmacist to be on duty at night. I work for a living, and their shutting down the pharmacies early is beyond ridiculous. What if you go to urgent care in the evening and get a prescription you need to start taking, are you supposed to wait for Rite Aid to reopen at 9 a.m. the next day to take it? I do not have time to leave work at noon to get a prescription. There are also fewer employees on duty at the S. Utica store lately; they used to have one or two on duty at the photo counter, for example, and now you can wait 15 minutes just to get your vacation photos back. One or two people now work the register and the photo counter at night, which is ridiculous. Walgreen's is much better. I am also glad Parkway is providing some choice in N. Utica, and I hope they do well there. I know the customer service is very good at the S. Utica store.

Currently yes the store is only open until 7pm but If someone is in need of a pick up of a new prescription or a refill, there is an after hours answering service at north utica store that allows you the option to transfer your call to one of the other locations which can then either fill your exisiting prescription or they will pick up and deliver your prescription free 7 days a week.

Good, it is better than 5 pm like rite aid. Plus I was told none of their pharmacies were open to help but the stores were. That did not help me.

Parkway drugs does not have a separate pharmacy like in the rite-aid stores. If Parkway is open albany street and french road, hours 9am-10pm 7 days a week then there is a pharmacist on duty. So there will always be a pharmacist to assist you if you need it

Parkway Drugs is the best. They take time to care for the customers. Not just a chain running on volume. Also, i heard they are great to work for.
