As any regular Madison Avenue shopper knows, sometimes a plain ol' corner drug store just wont do. But boutique pharmacies are moving (ever so slightly) closer to downtown and making a home on First Avenue. Case meets point with City Drugs, which opens next Wednesday and will cater to Upper East Side customers and their equally- fab pets. Turns out, when it comes to these high-end drug stores, we're not talking fancier, boutique meds for the upper-crusts, but rather, the drugstores are offering extra special attention, nutritional guidance, and a cushy middle-man between you and your doctor. But that's just where the perks begin. City Drugs will be a one-stop shop to fill prescriptions, stock up on luxe cosmetics (Ingrid Millet and Caudlalie to name a few), and, naturally, pamper your precious pooch with healthy supplements that even humans can chow down on (though we don't recommend it).
Housing an impressive pharmacy staff to keep those meds filled, it may be well worth the Metrocard swipe to take a trip to the new spiffy digs and treat yourself to a mini facial while you wait (perhaps instead of browsing the greeting-card section). If you've got the itch to check it out
they've got something to remedy that, patience please, City Drugs is just a couple pills away. (DNAInfo)
