When you go to any old pharmacy to pick up a prescription, you can expect to be able to pick up some tissues, a snack and soda, maybe even a book or magazine. But how many pharmacies sell homemade spanakopita?
Alexander’s Pharmacy, at 505 Nashua Road, is not any old pharmacy. It’s Dracut’s oldest independent pharmacy, dating back some 60 years. One of the more recent additions to the store’s stock is spinach pie, which will help those pills go down a little easier.
Jonathan Kontos, head pharmacist and manager, agreed to sell the spinach pies, made by an elderly longtime family friend, Vasilike Panagopoulos of Dracut, when her son asked Jonathan if he thought they would sell.
“The first day we had them, they sold out,” Jonathan says. “People were going crazy for it.”
OK, aside from the spanakopita, Alexander’s is a full-service pharmacy that offers what Jonathan calls “the personal touch.”
“We’re on a first-name basis with most of our customers,” he says. “They know we’ll always help them, especially during the pandemic. It’s all about the health and safety of the whole town.”
And the spinach pie. Don’t forget that.
