Oak Lawn Pharmacy manager Kelly Salinas New owner has recommitted the company to serve the LGBTQ community DAVID TAFFET | Senior Staff Writertaffet@dallasvoice.com Oak Lawn Pharmacy on Lemmon Avenue (David Taffet/Dallas Voice) Oak Lawn Pharmacy on Lemmon Avenue is under new ownership and has resumed the community-based, full service treatment for the LGBTQ community that it has been known for, according to company officials. “Since last fall, we’ve tried to build back to what we were when we opened in 2010,” manager Kelly Salinas said this week.
In 2010, the company opened as Pride Pharmacy in an office building on Carlisle Street in Oak Lawn that also housed Uptown Physicians Group.
The plan was to locate in buildings with a large HIV medical practice, specialize in HIV medications and also offer a full line of prescription drugs while providing the kind of customer service missing from national chains.
The idea for Pride Pharmacy came when a friend of the original owner said he’d give anything to not trip over boxes of Pampers to get to the pharmacist.
