Dear Valued Customer,

Personalized service has been the hallmark of independent pharmacies for more than a century. Despite the rise of retail pharmacy chains locating seemingly on every other street corner, the neighborhood drugstore model has stood the test of time and continues to serve families with high-quality care and attentiveness.

Theatre Pharmacy has proudly served the Lexington community since 1935, outlasting seven other local pharmacies. Its dedicated team of pharmacists, technicians and other staff has seen multiple generations of folks walk through the door to fill a prescription or pick up a greeting card, to seek advice on a medication or just to reflect on the weather and the state of the Red Sox.

This family-run business has experienced many milestones across the decades, and today has a new one to share: Theatre Pharmacy is now part of the Dinno Health family of independent pharmacies.

Theatre Pharmacy decided to sell to Dinno Health because both organizations believe in and practice the same values and each has a long record of successfully managing independent pharmacies and serving their respective communities. Dinno Health is also owned by practicing pharmacists – two brothers who operate Acton Pharmacy, Keyes Drug in Newton, and West Concord Pharmacy. All three are independent pharmacies cherished for their commitment to the health and wellness of the communities they serve. (You can learn more at www.dinnohealth.com.)

Founded by Ettore P. Venier and passed down to his pharmacist son Chris (who will now leave day-to-day pharmacy practice but become pharmacist emeritus), Theatre Pharmacy is one of the oldest family businesses in Lexington. And it will only grow older, under new ownership but carrying on with the same name and the same traditions.

Customers are at the heart of any pharmacy. Your health and wellness and satisfaction is our highest priority. We look forward to continuing to serve you at Theatre Pharmacy.
