HAPPY GOLDEN ANNIVERSARY!
I have been a customer and fan of New London since 1987. They are more than a great store with good employees. They have become friends and family. Their staff is warm, knowledgable and resourceful. In the day of the big chains on every corner it is refreshing to continue to have them in our presence. I have called them numerous times with questions and they have imparted their vast knowledge & expertise with me. Sometimes I didn't even end up making a purchase. Thank you for serving me, my family and our community. Here's to the next 50 years!

This Mom and Pop boutique/pharmacy has the best selection of the industry's most illusive fragrance, cosmetic, and skin care brands from around the world! I love bringing friends and family here to discover new products. The small staff is not only warm and welcoming, but extremely knowledgeable and always willing to help you find just what you are looking for!

I'm not normally compelled to publicly review a business, but I'm grateful to New London for all the times I was able to avoid a visit to the doctor after being correctly diagnosed and sent on my way with over-the-counter medication! - for rashes, coughs, back-aches, you name it.
Makes life a lot less complicated...
Also have to say I discovered and highly recommend the Odile Lecoin skin care line. If you're a New London customer, be sure to ask about it.

A breath of fresh air among all the other chain pharmacies in Chelsea, NYC. New London is a family owned business, that's not only a pharmacy but a beauty store as well; their staff is so welcoming that they make you feel as if they're your personal shoppers rather than sales people. The Cosmetics crew is very knowledgeable about all the products and willing to help. The girl at the counter spent an hour helping me pick out the perfect face wash (Nuxe Purifying Cleansing Gel-Highly Recommended), you definitely wouldn't find that type of service at a department store!!!
New London is one of the few family run pharmacies remaining today whose focus is solely on ensuring that their clients are 100% satisfied. The staff is extremely helpful and is there to answer any questions or concerns you may have, whether it pertains to your prescription, your symptoms or the beauty product that suits your skin best. New London Pharmacy offers an array of cosmetics, fragrances, and soaps as well as other items that make perfect ""get well"" or ""take a moment and relax"" gifts for a loved one. Without hesitation I would recommend New London! Abby and her well-qualified staff have turned what would have been yet another impersonal pharmacy into a relief haven for those who feel sick and a beauty haven for those in search of great European products !
A rare jewel that enhances the area of Chelsea! This family run pharmacy on Eighth Avenue, off 23rd St. is heaven sent! In an ever growing world that is impersonal and run by larger chains, New London Pharmacy has a gourmet selection of cosmetics, fragrances and anything else you may be looking for. But retail store aside, if you are looking for the type of care, attention and service you once received from your neighborhood pharmacist during a simpler time, this place is for you! Abby and everyone in the pharmacy department are knowledgeable and above, CARING! Feeling unwell is never fun and having to take new medications can be confusing, so it was a joyous surprise to find the pharmacy department in the back of the store! Abby, the owner and her team are truly hands on and cared about my every question and concern. With time, each time I returned to fill my prescriptions, I would be met by the friendly staff with a smile and they came to know me by first name. All my questions and concerns have always been met with the care and attentiveness you simply no longer receive, especially in a chain pharmacy setting like CVS or Duane Reade. Do yourself a favor and skip, don't run! to this stand out, in a sea of chain stores!
In a world filled with Duane Reade, CVS etc., its a breath of fresh air to come to a place that not only is personable, but informative as well. The friendly and knowledgeable staff know exactly what they are doing and how to go about doing it. There is something about a ""non-chain"" that is extremely comforting to me. To me its almost as if they care more and actually WANT to help you instead of making you feel like they are obligated to do so.
A friendly smile goes a long way and of course, you will get it here at New London! There are so many products that I never knew existed and I am so happy I do now, thanks to the staff at New London. Its a family run business and that is exactly how they make you feel, like family not a paying customer!
I highly recommed New London Pharmacy!
I have known the owners of this Pharmacy for over 20 years and their Medical expertise is priceless. New London Pharmacy has a different approach then your average Duane Reade Super drug market. They know you . They know their customers needs. You will always be in good hands .
New London Pharmacy is a beautiful place to browse around in. They carry over 100's of fragrances in addition to the Organic Skin and Hair products .
You'll never know what unique product you will find until you go ...
I come all accross town to get my medication AND lots of other products which I can't find anywhere else.
I'm from Europe and not only can I find stuff I can't get in NY otherwise, but it's always a pleasure to spend some time talking with nice and professional people.
It's nice to still have these kind of shop in the city, I would never change for a impersonal big chain such as Duane Reade or Wall mart.
Thank you New London for being there, and providing us with this kind of services, this become rare !
see you soon,

From Pharmacy, cosmetics, perfume, gifts, you name it.
Nothing like finding it all in one place.
London pharmacy offers all of the above and so much more.
You will find items beyond your imagination.
If you've never been there, you are really missing out.
My 7 month old baby had a rash that me and my wife were trying to get rid of for months. We tried every over the counter cream available for infants and nothing was working, in fact it was getting worse. My wife went to new london pharmacy for advice and one of the pharmacists recommended we tell our doctor about a cream they would make for her. We immediately notified our doctor and she wrote out a prescription for it. The pharmacists at new london compounded the cream the very same day.
They were so considerate and understanding, me and my wife were so happy to have found them.
About 3 days later, the rash went away and we finally got a good night's sleep.
New London Pharmacy really knows how to care for their patients.
A friend recommended me to this pharmacy. I live in Queens, so its a bit far. Anyway, here's my story... One day, my daughter (2 years old) became very ill. Our pediatrician wrote a prescription for her (who knows what it said -I couldn't read the hand writing). So I went to the local large franchise pharmacy in our neighborhood. They just looked at it and gave it back to me ""We can't read it"", the clerk behind the counter told me. After trying 3 more pharmacies in my neighborhood (apparently it was written for a medicine they had to make and not every pharmacy does compounds) I became anxious to get my daughter's medicine. So i got on the train and went to Chelsea to see if they could help me at New London Pharmacy. What a relief!!! The girls behind the counter were so helpful and kind. The pharmacist came out from behind the counter to personally explain a few things to me about the medication. They must have realized how clueless i was. I'm telling you, you can't imagine how grateful i am for New London Pharmacy. It's a little far for me to get there but their kind service and helpful advice has turned me into a loyal customer and therefore, soooo worth the commute. You can not compare this pharmacy to any other.

I have been coming to this pharmacy since I was a young girl, or better yet my parents have been filling there prescriptions at this pharmacy for years. They are a one of a kind pharmacy. I recently had ran out of refills for my birth control pill and it was a friday night and, I nor the pharmacists, were able to reach my doctor. I was leaving for a business trip and was desperate. Being that I have had this prescription filled here several times, and due to the fact that the pharmacy has established very close relationships with prescribers in the area, they filled my presciption and reassured me that they would speak to my doctor on monday. When I called on monday, not only to thank them but to check on the status of this situation, I was told that my doctor had been contacted and my predicament was explained to her and she agreed with the pharmacist's action and thanked her as well. I can go on with many more stories on how they have helped and guided my parents with many health issues as well. This pharmacy is well staffed with intellient, caring, and kind hearted individuals who understand everyday situations that can occur and will do everything they can to truly help you. When I told girlfriends of mine this story, they were in disbelief because they also had similar things like this happen to them and there pharmacies were not very willing to help. Sincerely, A very satisfied customer.

I had a refill for Wellbutrin XL 300 mg that was filled incorrectly. Make sure that when you get a generic from these people that it is in a sealed (manufacturer's) container, otherwise you might be in for a nasty surprise. Some idiot (none of the pharmacists are exactly rocket scientists, and some are functionally illiterate) gave me generic Zoloft 100 from some Indian company, Aurobindo, whose website is riddled with grammatical errors. I couldn't get a straight answer from the staff regarding who was responsible. If you get any generics from this pharmacy, verify the imprints to make sure you are getting the correct medication, because the staff here can't be bothered.

I adore this store!! I discovered it from a co-worker who is also a makeup artist. I do all kinds of makeup, from runway to editorial to weddings, and New London always has what I need, be it Bioderma or Elnett or Blue Drops or any other impossible to find can't live without products. Whats even better is if they don't have it they will get it for you somehow someway. I have requsted the craziest things and they always can get them for me! The customer service in this place is better than anywhere I have ever been. Abby the owner is a genius at finding the best products from all over and putting them in this convenient no-attitude boutique. The sales staff is really knowlegeable, and by the 2nd or 3rd time I came in they remembered my name. Wow. I once was going to by a really expensive electric razor there and one of the guys talked me in to buying a cheaper and much better razor-where else does that happen? After I do all my 'business' shopping, I love to browse the gorgeous candles and gifts-it's way better than Bendels or Berdorf, and with zero attitude. The fragrance selection is sick! One guy helped me for 45 minutes to find the perfect scent-it was like having a friend as a personal shopper. After a few months of shopping for beauty, I switched my prescriptions over to New London, and I have never made a better decision. Abby and the nutrionist there have helped me manage my high cholesteral, without the use of a single precription! I cannot say enough about New London. I have turned on all my friends and colleagues to this place and they love it as much as I do. I know I must sound like a cheerleader or something but if you go there you will know exactly what I mean. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Abby and her team really do know what they are talking about. I never got the feeling that somebody simply wanted to sell something to me for the sake of it. Abby even recommends the cheaper brand if she thinks that this is what's the best for the customer. I highly recommend this pharmacy!

Still the best place to shop in the city even after all these years!!
I come to NYC every winter and I always go to the New London Pharmacy for all my shopping needs. They have a nutritionist, Fouzia, who is knowledgeable and free of charge. She help me with my difficult skin problems from the inside out. She gave me a tincture to drink every day to help with my adult acne. She also gave me 3 nutritionals to combat fatigue, aging and skin related problems. She then introduced me to Wesley who gave me a skin care regimen for my type of skin. At the same time I bought my favorite, Colonia by Acqua di Parma, and a number gifts to take back home. Time is precious for me when I come to NYC and I need to do all my shopping whithout wasting time and messing about going to different shops. New London Pharmacy meets my health care needs and has all the top brand names which I look for. the staff is always courteous, helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. For me there is no other Pharmacy in NYC.

This is a great place! You can find out just about anything you need to about the really international assortment of products, many pricing lower than competitors in a field that is expensive to begin with. If you ask Abby, the chief pharmacist, anything about what they sell, she really knows her stuff and can guide you to the product you need.
