Retirement of Galens Pharmacy prompts Kinney Drugs takeover in Wayne County

Kinney Drugs, a leading pharmacy chain in New York and Vermont, will begin to serve Galens Pharmacy patients following the retirement of the Galens Pharmacy owners.

“With grateful acknowledgement of our success as a small business and the privilege of providing pharmacy services to our patients in the Clyde, Savannah, Rose and North Rose rural communities over the last 38 years, my wife and I have made the rather difficult decision to retire,” says Bob Montemorano, owner of Galens Pharmacy. “On behalf of our family and all our outstanding Galens employees, we sincerely thank you for the loyalty, support and kindness that you have extended to us, and we will forever cherish the friendships we have forged with you over the years.”

Galens Pharmacy will conduct business as usual through Friday, Nov. 8, 2019 at 6:00 p.m. Effective Saturday, Nov.  9, prescription records for Galens Pharmacy patients will be available at Kinney Drugs at 20 Forgham Street in Lyons.

“We greatly admire Kinney Drugs as a 100% employee-owned company that has been in business since 1903,” says Montemorano. “We chose Kinney Drugs because they provide a wide range of retail and pharmacy services including free prescription delivery to your home or business. Kinney’s professional pharmacy team offers consultations, immunizations, free Medicare plan comparisons and convenient DMV eye exams. We believe you’ll also appreciate Kinney’s extended hours and weekend hours in Lyons.”

Becky Bubel, R.Ph., Kinney Drugs President, said, “All of us at Kinney Drugs wish to congratulate Bob & Cheryl Montemorano on their retirement. We are honored to carry on their tradition of personalized service as we welcome Galens Pharmacy patients to our Lyons location. We look forward to providing patients with a wide range of pharmacy and retail products and services and are pleased to extend our free prescription delivery service to the greater Lyons area. Welcome to Kinney!”
