A new pharmacy, AJ’s Ridgewood Chemist, has opened in Ridgewood at 68-19 Fresh Pond Road, just diagonally across from the Peter Cardella Senior Center.
Normally this news would not cause much of a stir, but this pharmacy is different. This pharmacy is actually a second location for AJ’s Village Chemist in Middle Village and its “new” pharmacist is not so new. His name is Armand Baklajian and he has been serving the Glendale, Ridgewood and Middle Village communities for over 25 years!
Armand, a graduate of St. John’s University, speaks Romanian and Armenian and he decided to become pharmacist 30 years ago because he was passionate about becoming involved in a profession where he could help people. His goal is to assure all his customers that they will have no worries about their medication issues at AJ’s.
Now, as supervising pharmacist in his own new pharmacy, Armand has vowed to continue his record of excellence by providing top notch, caring and compassionate care to all his customers. The new pharmacy will provide numerous services to the public including filling prescriptions, medication consultations, fax service, free blood pressure checks, and document copying. They are offering all the name brand merchandise you trust including Solgar vitamins. And greeting cards are 50 percent off every day! In addition, AJ’s Ridgewood Chemist offers free pick up and delivery of all prescription orders so you never have to leave your home to pickup your meds when you are unwell.
Armand is issuing an invitation to all customers, new or old, to come in, say “Hello,” get a free blood pressure check and ask questions about their medications and he will be happy to assist them. Plus seniors get a 10 percent discount on health and beauty aids and there is a $5 discount on all transferred prescriptions!
For more information or to ask any questions about your medications, call Armand at (718) 456-4400. He will be happy to assist you.
