SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ – “Do you have Prince Albert in a can?”

“If you do you better let him out because the Queen is looking for him.”

That was a sample phone call back in the early 1970s on one of Twin City Pharmacy’s two phone lines. Today, with a total of 10 phone lines plus cell phones, modem lines and fax lines, Twin City has evolved to become a full-service pharmacy and HME (Home Medical Equipment) provider.

Being a leader in the movement to stop selling tobacco products in a pharmacy, Twin City stopped selling Prince Albert and other related tobacco products in 1986. An assortment of health-care related products and services over the years has replaced Hallmark Cards, Russell Stover Candies, gifts, newspapers and periodicals.  (According to the owners, the Cassio family, selling newspapers was in violation of child labor laws since their father and uncle insisted they wake up so early to piece together every Sunday.)
