Richardson's Custom Rx to move east-side store

drugsRichardson's Custom Rx Compounding Pharmacy is moving about a half mile east of its current location between Webb and Greenwich to the Village at Greenwich at 21st and Greenwich.

“It ended up to be a real attractive location,” Chris Richardson says of the area.

He likes “the frontage and the space that it gave us as well as the growth in that area.” Richardson also likes the growing medical sector near there.

The pharmacy will take 4,500 square feet in the development’s second building, which is half of the building’s space. Richardson says the move is an expansion from the east-side location’s 1,500 square feet. The 4,500 square feet matches the Richardson’s on the west side at 3510 N. Ridge.

Richardson’s is a strictly compounding pharmacy, meaning it uses multiple ingredients to create a final dosage. For instance, if a pediatric patient needs medicine that only comes in an adult dosage, Richardson’s can create it and even add flavoring that’s appealing to a child.

Richardson says there will be some changes with the new location — including a slight name change and some changes in services — which he’ll announce shortly before opening in late August or early September.
