New pharmacy opens in Wapato
WAPATO, Wash. -- Wapato has a new business that's long overdue; it's the only pharmacy in the city.

Horizon Pharmacy had its grand opening Monday morning on West First Street. Mayor Jesse Farias cut the ribbon to get things started.

The head pharmacist said it's exciting to be able to help people in need. Until now, patients had to go to Toppenish for the closest pharmacy.

"I think it means more to me and my family to be here and enjoy this excitement of the community along with them and we know we are going to take good care of them," said Deepak Dhruva, the main pharmacist at Horizon Pharmacy.

Horizon pharmacy started filling prescriptions Monday.
