The Modern Chemist Opens in DUMBO!
The Modern Chemist has opened up its doors on Water Street, right across from Empire Stores. As a pharmacy, they are dedicated to promoting wellness and to building strong community ties. This DUMBO location, the third The Modern Chemist in Brooklyn, is the largest of the three, and features an eat-in space, a backyard patio and more.
The Modern Chemist opened its first pharmacy in Park Slope in 2010. They opened in Gowanus shortly thereafter. Carlos, the owner, had had his eye on DUMBO for a while. Given The Modern Chemist’s focus not only on providing products, but also on providing expert health and wellness advice, DUMBO seemed like a natural fit for expansion. “What better place than to bring all these things and integrate them than DUMBO?” Carlos told us.
The Modern Chemist is known for a level of personalized service that hearkens back to a time when “mom and pop” pharmacies enjoyed a unique bond with their customers. They offer individualized advice and services that help their customers optimize their health and wellbeing, and makes it easy for them to navigate the increasingly complex worlds of medication and insurance issues.
As they have grown, they have expanded to include top-of-the-line personal care products. Carlos offers carefully selected products from around the world, as well as New York City, many in response to direct requests from customers. Their DUMBO location takes it to the next level, too: at their Water St locale, they’ve added spaces where customers can grab a bite, and do some work, all with the goal of providing and advocating for a healthier living. They have plans to host events in their backyard in the summer months, too!
And if for whatever reason you can’t walk into 62 Water St– they will come to you! That’s right: you can order delivery not only to your home, but to your office as well.
