ELY - Essentia Health will double this city’s pharmacy services later this year when it opens a new facility in the relocated in the new Zup’s Food Market.
Ely has had only one pharmacy, Ely Community Pharmacy, since the closure of Shopko.
An announcement was made last Friday.
“At Essentia Health, we are always looking for ways to better serve our patients,” said a press release from Kenzie Hohman, senior director of ambulatory care pharmacy at Essentia. “That includes providing service closer to home. Bringing an Essentia Health pharmacy to Ely aligns with that objective, and we’re excited to open by the end of 2021.”
In an update last week on the progress of opening Ely’s new grocery market, Zup’s Food Market owner Jimmy Zupancich would only say that he signed a contract with a pharmacy. “We were asked not to reveal the name yet,” he said at the time. “They’ll have the drive-through, too, and are hoping to be ready to open when we are.”
Zupancich said the new grocery store, located in the former Shopko building, will be open by mid-October. The new pharmacy and a liquor store will also be opened by then.
The Essentia Health-Ely Pharmacy will be located in the back of the new market at 1500 E. Sheridan St. in the same place as the Shopko pharmacy. Hours of operation were not announced.
