There's a new pharmacy business in Blacksburg that says it will bring your medications to you, for free.

Blacksburg Pharmacy, located at 1403 North Main opened Monday. The owner, Sen Marimuthu, said he worked nearly 11 years as a corporate pharmacist in town. Marimuthu said he learned a lot at Rite-Aid but wanted a more personal relationship with his patients.

"I don't see anybody compounding or delivering prescriptions and there [are] a lot of elderly people and also there is a high population that needs certain medications compounded."

Blacksburg Pharmacy says it compounds medications and accepts nearly every type of insurance. Blacksburg Pharmacy is open seven days a week and is the town's only independent pharmacy and the only one that delivers.
