This past summer, Saegertown Hardware transitioned to a larger facility one mile north, vacating their former location next to H&H. In its place will be Saegertown Pharmacy, which is owned by Robert and Esther Sweeney. The former space occupied by Saegertown Hardware has been split in two separate areas by a wall. The pharmacy will occupy one of these spaces, and will be family-owned and operated.
“I think that’s cool. I think it’s a good thing to have around here, it kind of adds a little more character to our little town,” Saegertown senior Cheyanne Mast said.
So far the owners have received a very positive response. “The public is ecstatic, we have gotten a very overwhelming response,” Esther said. “We are hoping to get all of the local people there for a soft opening and will have a grand opening once the weather is nicer.”
At this point, the opening day is still unknown, as they are waiting on the Pennsylvania Board of Pharmacy for a license. “We can be open at anytime. We just need 24 hours to get everything set up,” Esther said
More information will follow as the new businesses progress.
