Seiler and staff will make transition
By Liz Vos
“If it wasn’t good for the community, it’s not something I would do,” said pharmacist Will Seiler of his decision to sell Albany Apothecary to CVS Pharmacy. “I think it will be a very positive change.”
Albany Apothecary’s last day open is Feb. 17.
Seiler pointed out that the closure of the Albany Area Hospital at the end of 2015 and the incoming of CVS Pharmacy, also in 2015, have motivated the decision to sell.
“We didn’t think either one was going to affect us that much, but we found out early on that it really has,” he said.
Seiler has owned and operated Albany Apothecary since 1998, but the pharmacy’s location on Main Street has served the area’s needs since at least the 1920’s.
