Pharmacy, Physical Therapy Center To Open In Former Nanticoke Personal Care Home
NANTICOKE - A former personal care home in downtown Nanticoke will see new life as a pharmacy and physical therapy center. The General Municipal Authority has agreed to sell the former Villa Personal Care home to FCLN Real Estate LLC for $450,000, according to a real estate consulting firm handling public relations on the project. Nockley Family Pharmacy, which has locations in Hanover Township and Scranton, plans to open their third location at the property. Cawley Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation, plans to use part of the building to relocate and grow their Nanticoke practice. The business has five locations including the Nanticoke facility. This move will allow Cawley to increase available services in Nanticoke by adding an aquatics therapy pool. Additional retail space will be available. “Good things are happening,” said City Manager Donna Wall. The Nanticoke Municipal Authority bought the property at East Main and Walnut Streets for $825,000 after the personal care home closed. The purchase was made through a $1 million grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development’s Pennsylvania First. The Municipal Authority voted to see the property last Monday. The sale is still pending. Proceeds will be used to find other projects in the downtown. “We’ve been a quiet partner in Nanticoke’s economic development for a long time and now our efforts are starting to show. We look forward to continuing to support the City of Nanticoke in its revitalization efforts so that the whole community can benefit,” said John Nadolny, chairman of the municipal authority.
