Humble beginnings in Niagara Falls
After graduating from the University at Buffalo School of Pharmacy, Alfonse Muto began his pursuit to open his own store right here in Western New York. In 1985, the journey began on Pine Avenue in Niagara Falls. As owner and the sole employee, Alfonse was able to afford his customers the attention and service they wanted—and deserved.
Pine Pharmacy is still serving the community of Niagara Falls from our current location in the City Market, managed by co-owner and long-time pharmacist William Tompkins. We offer a wide range of products and services, including compounding, Durable Medical Equipment (DME), over-the-counter medications, quality vitamins and nutritional supplements, immunizations, free delivery, and the best service in the industry.
Serving the Northtowns: expanding into Willamsville
With growing demand for the community’s need for personalized medication solutions, Alfonse realized the demand for a centralized pharmacy specializing in the age old pharmacy art of compounding. Pine Pharmacy in Williamsville, NY, located in the Walker Center right outside of Buffalo, is a state-of-the-art “Compounding-Only” pharmacy. As a PCAB Accredited pharmacy, we offer a wide range of products and services in addition to compounding, including quality vitamins and nutritional supplements, cosmeceuticals, mailing and delivery, and the best service in the industry.
Adapting to the Times: Pine Pharmaceuticals
With the passage of the Drug Quality and Securities Act of 2013, a new, FDA registered pharmacy entity termed “503B” was established. These facilities are able to compound certain products for prescriber office use without the need for a patient specific prescription. In 2014, Alfonse and his son, Alfonse, Jr. opened Pine Pharmaceuticals in Tonawanda, NY, the only FDA registered 503B outsourcing facility currently in the Western New York Region, allowing the Pine family to meet the growing need for office use compounded medications.
Bringing Pine wellness solutions to Rochester
In 2015, Pine Pharmacy and Twelve Corners Apothecary merged to become Pine Pharmacy at Twelve Corners to serve the Rochester area with access to more quality health and wellness products in-store. Pine Pharmacy has been serving customers over 30 years with compounding solutions to your pharmaceutical needs. As the pharmacy landscape evolves and our population’s needs change,
Pine Pharmacy is committed to staying at the forefront of the industry to serve the Western New York community with the same commitment to health and wellness.
To exceed the expectations of our customers and prescribers for quality of products and service. As a company, we will continually improve ourselves through education and innovation.
