Somerset Park Pharmacy Celebrates Opening Of PostNet Location

PostNet marketing manager Sean Hubbs and township Deputy Mayor James Vassanella (l to r) cut the ribbon Oct. 26 at the PostNet grand opening ceremony.

The Somerset Park Pharmacy has expanded its offering of services with the addition of as PostNet franchise at its 900 Easton Avenue location.

PostNet features a varied menu of services, from copying and printing to graphic design and shipping via the US Postal Service, FedEx, UPS and DHL.

Deputy Mayor James Vassanella was on hand on Oct. 26 to help Somerset Park Pharmacy owner Chintan Patel and his team celebrate the opening.

PostNet, Vassanella said, “is a great expansion to the pharmacy that’s already here and has been here for over 60 years in our community.”

Patel, who has owned the pharmacy since 2014, said he was spurred to add PostNet because of customer requests for those types of services.

“We saw this demand,” he said. “The Post Office here in Franklin Township is so busy. We saw OfficeDepot (formerly in Rutgers Plaza) go out of business. People used to come in and ask us about copying and printing and faxing services, and we did not have that at the time.”

Patel said his initial thought was to simply bring in a large copier and fax machine, but discussion with PostNet representatives changed his mind.

The front of the pharmacy has been transformed into a copy/shipping center. Also for sale are mailing supplies, such as tape and specialized envelopes.

The PostNet center is managed by Anthony Sands, who is also the graphic designer. Sean Hubbs is the marketing manager.

The PostNet center is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays.
