“We are delighted to welcome Jerry and the Fairway team to the Price Chopper family,” said Kathy Bryant, Vice President of Pharmacy for Price Chopper. “We look forward to building upon the foundation of trusted and convenient pharmacy care that they have long provided to the Montrose community, while expanding and enhancing the patient services that are offered.”
“We look forward to continuing to provide the high level of care that our patients have come to expect from us, and believe that the addition of support from Price Chopper’s highly regarded pharmacy division will increase our ability to serve the community,” said Prusack. “The construction of a brand new pharmacy inside the Price Chopper Supermarket marks a significant investment in our community that will provide our customers with the added convenience of one-stop shopping.”
