NORTH ARLINGTON, N.J. – Assemblyman Gary Schaer will present North Arlington's HB Pharmacy with a ceremonial resolution for being awarded the Good Neighbor Pharmacy of the Year award .
The ceremony is scheduled to begin at 12:30 p.m. Friday.
Gaspar Bellitti opened the Ridge Road pharmacy in 1964. It is currently owned and operated by his son, John.
HB "received the esteemed award for exemplifying what it means to be a Good Neighbor Pharmacy in its commitment to enhancing patient care and lives in local communities," according to an AmerisourceBergen press release.
"We try to do a good job, we try to be genuine, we try to be sincere," said Bellitti, who took over 26 years ago. "We try and take care of the tradition my father started."
