Your Neighborhood Pharmacy with over 20 Years of Experience
Established in 1985, Alden Pharmacy is your neighborhood pharmacy.
Since 1917 the building located at 13203 Broadway in the Village of Alden has been a Pharmacy. In June 1985 Supervising Pharmacist, Ronald Smith, decided to give it a try and maintain the same personal service for which the Pharmacy was known.
Today, Kara Smith, PharmD (Ron's daughter) and her staff at Alden Pharmacy continue to maintain accomplishing that goal. With the addition of Alden Medical Supply located just down the street, we focus on Pharmacy and Home Health Care Services and are able to give our customers the one-on-one service that should be expected from your Pharmacy.
We are open 7 days a week and provide 24 hour-a-day emergency coverage for prescriptions. The pharmacy carries an extensive inventory of medications and receives deliveries 6 days a week to insure quick access to any medication not currently stocked. Local delivery service is available to anyone unable to come to the pharmacy.
We participate with Medicaid, Medicare, Univera, Blue Cross of WNY and Independent Health.
