Pharmacist Gives Chains A Run For Their Money


Manhasset resident Dr. Chris Papazian, a third-generation pharmacist, is owner of the Roslyn Pharmacy. Opened in 2009, the store is a perfect fit for a historic village. It is conveniently located adjacent to the Roslyn Clock Tower at 1314 Old Northern Blvd.

Customers that visit the pharmacy daily always enjoy stopping in. One customer who was away for a week mentioned that she “missed coming into the pharmacy.” It is that type of atmosphere that Roslyn Pharmacy creates for its customers. They also know it is a place where they can custom order what they need. Roslyn Pharmacy did not miss a day during Hurricane Sandy; with a backup generator they were there to service the entire neighborhood in that time of need.

Dr. Papazian is also pharmacy preceptor and adjunct professor for College of Pharmacy Students for both St. John’s University and the University of Buffalo. Students are assigned to his pharmacy monthly to fulfill their internships and work under his tutelage.

Roslyn Pharmacy is the ultimate alternative to a chain pharmacy with prices just as competitive as the chains without the hustle and bustle. It has free delivery and pick up during the day as well as curbside pickup. Customers at times call with an emergency and delivery is made quickly.

“Our customers all share in supporting the local stores. They understand local support means a thriving village,” said Dr. Papazian, “Patrons would rather shop here than go elsewhere just due to the convenience and service. One thing you learn after being in a family business for close to 100 years is if you work hard, put in your time and are loyal to your customers .your customers will in turn be loyal to you. This is the main goal and focus of Roslyn Pharmacy.”

The pharmacy is a strong supporter of the local schools, sport teams, historical society and the Henry Viscardi School, and donates back to the community and various associations. Store hours are seven days a week, Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
