LAKE MILTON — Lake Milton Pharmacy, 17674 Mahoning Ave., is under new ownership but will remain an independent, locally owned pharmacy.
Alexis Benyo purchased the business in December when previous owner Marshall Wexler decided to retire from the business. Benyo shadowed Wexler at Lake Milton Pharmacy during her first year of pharmacy school.
“Owning my own business was something I always wanted to do,” Benyo said in a news release. “I grew up watching my family run The Brilex Group of Companies and was confident I would do the same one day. When this opportunity came up, it was perfect for me. I knew owning my own pharmacy provided a unique opportunity to promote my values of providing exceptional patient care and stronger patient relationships.”
Benyo is a lifelong resident of Austintown and graduated from Austintown Fitch High School in 2013. She went to Duquesne University School of Pharmacy and graduated in 2019. After graduating, she worked for a corporately owned pharmacy.
“It was our great fortune to find a qualified and caring person to continue our legacy as an independent pharmacy,” Wexler said. “We are proud that Alexis is the new owner of Lake Milton Pharmacy. She has amazing credentials and will continue to be an asset for future growth and expansion of services to our pharmacy and the community. We congratulate her and wish her continued success.”
“It’s very exciting,” Benyo said. “Customers can expect to receive the same great service and personal attention Marshall Wexler has provided the area for over 41 years.”
The pharmacy is open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sundays. For more information, call 330-654-3792.
