Ashburn Pharmacy announces start of soft opening

A new independent pharmacy has started a soft opening in Ashburn. It’s called — appropriately enough — Ashburn Pharmacy.

It’s tucked into a 1,000 s.f. space next door to the Aldi grocery store in the Broadlands Village Center.

The new drugstore packs a lot into its small space — including long shelves of essential over-the-counter products, consultation areas to meet with a pharmacist, and even a children’s play area.

Independent pharmacies like Ashburn Pharmacy are sometimes referred to as “compounding pharmacies.”

This means that they are often able to make special mixtures of drugs that larger drugstore chains are less likely to offer. This can be important to families who have unique medical needs.

Ashburn Pharmacy is open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays, and closed on Sundays.
