Conroy Apothecary will close its Oak Bluffs location on Nov. 1 after 10 years of filling prescriptions and providing over-the-counter medicines in the down-Island community.

The people of Oak Bluffs have spoken: they wanted a pharmacy, and now they have one. Conroy’s Apothecary has been welcoming new customers for a little over two weeks, and hopes to be there for generations to come.

“Everyone’s been very welcoming, the town, and all the people,” owner Stan Hersh said at his new store earlier this week. “We’re very excited.”

Noyes Building

It’s been 120 years since the Noyes Building on Pennacock avenue first opened its doors to the Oak Bluffs community, serving as a post office, a market and most recently a library. And now it houses Conroy’s Apothecary and three affordable housing apartments, welcoming lower income families into a more urban neighborhood.
