FLORENCE- Massey Drugs Discount Pharmacy and Owner/Pharmacist Matthew Massey, with locations in Florence and Tuscumbia, continues to grow with the acquisition of Northwood Pharmacy in north Florence and by hiring veteran pharmacist Tim Connolly.
Tim Connolly, 1981 Auburn School of Pharmacy graduate, previously with Rite-Aid for the past 33 years, brings his top-notch pharmaceutical care and customer service ethics to Massey Drugs. “Taking care of you is our mission at Massey Drugs,” says Matthew Massey, owner/pharmacist of Massey Drugs. “Tim fits that mold perfectly and he is one of the most genuine and caring people I’ve met in the pharmacy profession. I am thrilled to have him on our team and at our newest Massey Drugs location, Northwood.”

Massey Drugs opened in 2005 after acquiring another local pharmacy and its second location opened in March of last year. “I am extremely pleased to have a second store in Florence and a third location in the Shoals area,” says Massey. “Independent pharmacies, like ours, represent a significant portion of the health care delivery system as we are among the most accessible and trusted sources of health care for our patients. We counsel [patients] on the treatment of a variety of health-related concerns and help to ensure that medicine is taken correctly and consistently. We also refer patients to generic treatment options, when they are available, to help them minimize their costs.”

As a member of the National Community of Pharmacists Association, Massey Drugs is committed to accreditation standards, practices sound processes, and hires the best personnel to prepare medications for their patients. For over a decade Massey Drugs has provided and will continue to offer accurate filling and dispensing, convenient drive-thru windows, home delivery, online refills, and refill Rx Mobile.
