Bayside pharmacy offers natural products
Sterling, sells eco-friendly soaps and sun care items, compounds presciptions for special needs
Bell Boulevard in Bayside has two Rite Aids, but if you are willing to travel a little farther north on the shopping strip, you will come across a pharmacy that offers some unique products you cannot find anywhere else.
Billing itself as a European-style alternative to the citywide chain stores, Sterling Pharmacy carries the Band-Aid and the Colgate brands you would expect to find on shelves all over Queens. But it also stocks a unique collection of organic and natural products attractive to today's conscientious consumer.
"You can get your meds at any location and they're all the same," said supervising pharmacist and partner Chris Tsatsaronis. "I'd say half of what we have here you can find at a traditional pharmacy, and the pother half is aimed at customers who are that much more aware of the benefits of natural products."
