Tiffany’s Doubles Size Of Westfield Pharmacy

Pictured, left to right, are: Maureen O’Connor, pharmacist; Mayor Jardim and his daughter, Cecile; Bogden Bienko, owner, and Darryl Walker, Westfield Area Chamber of Commerce Chairman.
WESTFIELD — Just as the bridge at Crossway Place has been redesigned and reopened with a new look, so has Tiffany Natural Pharmacy at 1115 South Avenue West, in Westfield.
Tiffany’s has more than doubled their size, by taking over the vacant retail space next to them and completely renovating the facility. During the renovations, they never had to close the store.
With remodeling the store, the store has increased their product lines to include many of the contemporary alternative therapies to help treat or prevent disease, as well as continuing with the traditional pharmacy drugs that are dispensed with a doctor’s prescription.
Natural remedies carried include St. John’s Wart for depression, Chamomile for relaxation, Valerian Root for sleeping, and Ginseng for energy. They have a full selection of vitamins, including antioxidants.
Tiffany’s has also doubled their gift and card departments, offering a large selection for birthdays, holidays and special occasions.
Bogden Bienko, a registered pharmacist, is the owner of Tiffany’s as well as four other pharmacies and
two vitamin stores in the area. He grew up in Irvington, with a pharmacy on the corner near his home.
When he was in high school, Mr. Bienko said he enjoyed working in a pharmacy in Dunellen. He was always interested in science, so a career as a pharmacist was a natural for him.
Mr. Bienko attributes his success to the personalized service his customers receive from his experienced staff. A number of his employees have been with the store for many years.
“Seventy percent of Americans have tried some form of alternative medicine. We feel our focus on natural remedies will meet the needs of our customers both now and in the future,” said Mr. Bienko.
Maureen O’Connor is the Pharmacist in Charge and a Westfield resident for 10 years. The couple has two daughters, and are expecting a third this winter.
“My girls attend the same schools their father attended when he was growing up. There is a true sense of community in Westfield, and the process has come full circle with my children being raised here,” said Ms. O’Connor.

Stop & Shop Buys Out Elm St. Edwards Market By MELISSA BETKOWSKI
Specially Written for The Westfield Leader and The Times
On Saturday, October 28, the Edwards Super Food Store on Elm Street in Westfield will close its doors at 6 p. m. and begin converting to a Stop & Shop supermarket.
Last May, Ahold USA, the parent company for both store chains, decided to move 70 Edwards stores from the Carlisle, Pa.based Giant supermarket chain to Stop & Shop, a Quincy, Mass. company.
According to Jim Walsh, senior vice president of Stop & Shop’s New York metro sales division, after market research, it was discovered that the Stop & Shop name was more recognizable to New York and New Jersey consumers.
Edwards, Mr. Walsh said, is an “everyday low price” store, meaning that the chain does not offer weekly sales. Stop & Shop, on the other hand, is a “high/ low” store, offering weekly sales, and competing with other stores that also offer weekly sales.
After the conversion, which should take six or seven days, customers will find “very clean, wellstocked, customerfocused stores,” Mr. Walsh said.
He said that the store would be clean from floor to ceiling with wide aisles with no clutter in them.
Mr. Walsh also mentioned that the variety of products carried in the store will match the needs of the store’s local environment, with special ethnic or cultural products being offered.
Stop & Shop will place more employees in the front end of the store, with baggers on each of the registers.
Stop & Shop will also strive to connect with the community it serves. “It is obvious to me that a store should connect with the community,” Mr. Walsh said. “We are going to be more active,” he said. Mr. Walsh said that Stop & Shop stores will sponsor youth sports teams and make donations to local charities.
The manager of the Edwards store declined comment to The Westfield Leader.
Stop & Shop supermarkets are New England’s largest supermarket chain with 205 stores in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York and Rhode Island. In 1999, Stop & Shop had sales of $6.7 billion. Ahold USA, the parent company, is the fifthlargest food retailer in the United States.
