Laven Pharmacy, an independent drug store that has been operating out of 41-31 Queens Blvd, has moved location.
The pharmacy reopened this week at 43-20 43rd Avenue, after spending several years on Queens Blvd.
The new location was once the space occupied by a 99 cents store—and was going to be a performing arts studio, until it was blocked by zoning rules. The performing arts studio eventually found space above Key Food on Queens Blvd (46th Street).
The previous location of Laven Pharmacy remains empty and there is no word of a new tenant moving into the location. The owner of E-Bike, which is located next door, has no intention of taking the space—despite having several bikes parked out front of the empty store.
