Vogel Pharmacy is a mainstay on historic Main Street in Beacon, New York. Beginning in a brick building 80 years ago, the business was known as Vogel Drugstore. Today the business is now known as Vogel Pharmacy, Inc. 'Vogel’s', as some local residents affectionately refer to the pharmacy, is considered a vital neighbor in the community.

Anthony Valicenti Jr., President of Vogel Pharmacy, Inc. brings 18 years’ experience to the business. A graduate of the Massachusetts College of Pharmacology, Anthony manages the Vogel brand of business almost like the original owners.
One Vogel descendant, Dr. Steven Vogel, Duke University professor, recalls memories of Vogel's pharmacy, customer service value and satisfaction in those early years.

Customer satisfaction is the core of what Vogel offers. “It’s an honor for me to be in Beacon,” says Anthony. “I know this community well. The tell us what they need and we get it in the store as quickly as we can.”

The mortar and pestle logo greets you before you enter the front door of Vogel Pharmacy. Immediately you experience the sense of community appeal. The store’s products include hard-to-find salves and balms. You will find sports creams, athletic support bands and cosmetics. Parents can find toys for younger children. Costume jewelry for young teenagers suggests there are necessities for anyone at Vogel Pharmacy.

The senior community can request rehabilitative products. Anthony consults his vendor network. His industry catalog helps him arrange for product delivery in the shortest time possible.

Anthony Valicenti keeps pace with trends and shifts in the marketplace. His product strategies serve Beacons’ preferences and needs. Local residents, facilities and non-residents use Vogel services year round. Many businesses struggle with customer services and customer retention. Most use social media to market but not connect. Not Vogel Pharmacy. The business enjoys social visibility. The real connection is with the community of Beacon.

The business is a trusted brand led by a president who respects the history of value and the customer satisfaction model as historic as the building itself.
