rite aid has a great pharmacy in monessen, the people there are so very nice back in the pharmacy department. they truly do care about you as a person. they always check to make sure none of your prescriptions interact with the others and always give suggestions and always ask if you have any questions. If you do have questions, they take the time to make sure you understand and dont just rush you through. i have been going there for a few years now and have gotten offers to switch pharmacies and get free gift cards for switching, but it is not worth it for the service i would be losing. when people genuinely care, that is a great feeling and you cannot put a price tag on that. as far as other items in the store, the are a little higher than other stores, but they always have great sales. the good ones though, run out quickly and that is my one complaint, but otherwise, i like this store and always recommend it!
