From the La Cañada Valley Sun

To all Flintridge Pharmacy customers who attempt to walk into their current front door next March 1: Have no fear. You’ll only be two storefronts off.

Flintridge Pharmacy is preparing to move two doors down, next to the Bank of America, in the 500 block of Foothill Boulevard in La Cañada Flintridge,  in a renovated larger space that pharmacy owner Michael Stremfel said will allow the business to reinvent itself.

“[The new space] is not significantly bigger,” Stremfel said. “It’s 2,400 square feet, we’re gaining approximately 200 square feet. That’s the least significant aspect of our move.”

The new store will be organized into different sections: one for the pharmacy, one for the medical equipment and one for a potential nutrition and diet section. The goal, Stremfel said, is to synergize all of the store’s purposes to make it a one-stop shop for all of its customer’s medical needs.

“What this new store is going to allow us to do is to further evolve the amount of medical expertise that we provide,” Stremfel said. “We’re hoping to bring on a registered dietician. We’re going to have a substantial nutrition center, which is going to help us complement our compounding business.”
