Our featured guest is Mike Nastro – Mike owns and manages Fairview Pharmacy which began as a division of St. Charles Hospital in 1995. Mike purchased the business from St Charles in early 2002 and moved to their current location on Nesconset Hwy in Port Jefferson Station.
As a small business owner, in an industry dominated by large retail pharmacy chains, Mike can give us insight into not only the complexity of running pharmacies in today’s medicated world, but also shed some light on the economy and its effects on small businesses in our communities.
Mike and I will discuss the current security crisis that retail pharmacies face in an era of runaway prescription drug addiction that has resulted in an ongoing high profile crime spree. Suffolk County’s most heinous mass murder occurred late last year in a nearby Medford owner-operated pharmacy.
And … our pal STEVE WIEHE will check in from Florida to give us his take on current events.
