WOODLAWN - A pharmacy in Woodlawn has reopened following a fast-moving fire that destroyed the business over the summer.

The Emerald Pharmacy moved to a different section of Katonah Avenue, only a block and a half away from the old store. The temporary location is a much smaller space than what the owner is used to.

"Hopefully we will be here for another couple months tops,” says owner Shawn Nealis. “It's up in the air until we start to get more concrete work done in the store."

A local customer says that the pharmacy was still making home deliveries one day after the August fire.

Nealis promises that the old store location at 4299 Katonah Ave. will be back. He hopes to open by Jan. 1, 2014.

Behan’s Pub was also destroyed during the fire.
