About Our Pharmacy

Howard Beach Apothecary was founded in 1985 by the same Supervising Pharmacist that still runs the store. Jeff has been in the pharmacy business for over 30 years and is just as passionate about it today as he was when was 21 years old. He, as well as the other two pharmacists, Sunny and Joe, always treat their customers like family and have built their business around the motto “Your Family's Health Is Our Business.”

Howard Beach Apothecary is conveniently located on Cross Bay Boulevard between 158th and 159th Avenues in the Howard Beach section of Queens. We strive to be the pharmacy of choice by always providing expert advice and professional care while keeping our customers best interests at heart. Howard Beach Apothecary has the friendly feel of a mom and pop shop. We still believe in old fashioned values like giving customers our personal attention. We are never too busy to offer advice or just chat, and this is how we have come to know so many of our customers as friends.

Come in and join our pharmacy family because "Your Family's Health is Our Business.” We promise you will see why so many people choose our pharmacy for their health needs.

Howard Beach Apothecary is a full service pharmacy offering a wide variety of products and services. We carry both brand name and high quality generic medications. We also compound and make suppositories, capsules, liquids, creams and ointments to fulfill each individual's personal needs. Each Pharmacist is highly educated, experienced and knowledgeable. Our pharmacists counsel our customers to help them better understand how to take their medications and how their medications work. Your phone calls are always answered promptly and never by a machine, and all prescriptions are filled on-site by one of our three professional Pharmacists.
