Las Vegas, NV - Located on 1144 E. Charleston Ave. in the Historic Huntridge Neighborhood, Huntridge Pharmacy serves as Las Vegas's oldest and longest running pharmacy. Since 1962, Huntridge Pharmacy has been family owned and operated and is also one of the few non-chain pharmacies anywhere in Las Vegas and even Henderson which is a plus to many.

Huntridge Pharmacy has been serving the Las Vegas Valley for over forty years and because of so much history, they pride themselves on providing a unique 1950's style atmosphere where friends of the neighborhood would meet at the local drug store to socialize and hang out.

Huntridge Pharmacy has a long history with its current community, but when asked RTC's proposed project--it was new information. It came as a shock that the decision of the project would come so soon without any community outreach or involvement. When told about the project, local pharmacist, Dr. Nikki, PharmD stated, "It sounds like gentrification."
