Welcome to our Pharmacy

We look forward to serving you.

Suburban Pharmacy was founded in 1961 by Tom Shanos, who ran the store with his wife, Anna.  Tom was the proud owner and pharmacist until his death in 1986.  Tom's son, Nick, loved running around the store as a young child "helping" his dad.  Suburban Pharmacy and Nick have been, and continue to be, long-standing fixtures here in Norwood.  Since the grand opening of the pharmacy 54 years ago, we have chosen to make some tremendous changes that have put us at the forefront of technology and innovation.  We have also chosen to keep some things just the same, allowing us to truly know, understand, and care for our customers ~ our neighbors.

Pharmacist In Charge

Nick Shanos

Nick grew up right here in Norwood and attended Norwood Elementary School.  He was an outstanding student who was well liked by his peers and teachers. Nick enjoyed walking after school to his dad's store, Suburban Pharmacy, to help stock the shelves and meet the customers.

From an early age, Nick knew that he wanted to be a pharmacist.  He loved watching his dad interact with the customers, and admired the respect and friendship that developed.  Nick was deeply affected and influenced by seeing his dad care for friends and neighbors while forming bonds that lasted for many years.

After graduation from Aldrich Junior High and Pilgrim High School at the top of his class, Nick went on to become a pharmacist, attending the University of Rhode Island School of Pharmacy, graduating in 1986.  Nick is a member of the National Community Pharmacists Association.
