Saver-X Pharmacy


Owner Milford Schneiderman opened Saver-X, a totally
discount pharmacy, at 1216 16th St., in 1971.


HUNTINGTON Saver-X, described by owner Milford Schneiderman as
a totally discount pharmacy, opened at 1216 16th St., in 1971.

Schneiderman said that although some pharmacies offered discounts
 on prescriptions to senior citizens, there had never been
a totally discount drug store in Huntington.

He said his pharmacy was able to offer its low prices because it offered
no delivery service, no charge accounts and no superfluous luxuries.

Schneiderman, who graduated from St. Louis College of Pharmacy in
 1958, was the manager at another Huntington pharmacy for nearly
eight years before deciding at age 35 to open his own store.

After operating Saver-X for 29 years, Schneiderman closed it in 2000.

West Virginia and the Tri-State have been wonderful to us, he
 said. Its been a privilege to be a pharmacist in this area.

Schneiderman said he had decided to sell his store and
retire in order to spend more time with his family.

I hated to sell it, he said. I had the most wonderful staff,
loyal and excellent. Ive had wonderful relationships
 with the professional community in Huntington. I
want to thank the wonderful customers. Ive
 had a good relationship with professional
 staff in the health-care field.

The CVS Pharmacy at 800 20th St. took over Saver-Xs
 prescription files. The building that had housed
the pharmacy is now home to the
Fuji Express Restaurant.
