Pharmacist and former owner Rick Henriksen will remain as pharmacist and manager in charge of the store as well as all current employees, according to Harn.

“Our biggest thing is we’re not here to make a bunch of changes,” Harn said. “We’ll have the same friendly faces, same services and same products.”

U Save It Pharmacy is based out of Albany, Ga. with pharmacist Fred Sharpe operating since 1979. U Save It owns 20 stores, mostly in Georgia, but with a store recently purchased in Spartanburg and another in Franklin, N.C.

Harn said he currently lives in Georgia but plans to relocated closer to this area in the spring.

Tryon Pharmacy began in 1963 and was purchased by Henriksen in 1991.
