At Kinney, we celebrate our employee owners! One of our favorite ways is through our annual “Favorite Pharmacist & Employee” contest. This year’s theme was “Rock Stars” and was a fun way to recognize that all Kinney’s employees are “stars” and to pick two that “really rocked” 2022! Throughout September, customers voted for their Favorite Pharmacist &/or Employee online or in their local store.

Last week, the two employees who received the most votes were named Favorite Pharmacist and Favorite Employee in celebration of American Pharmacist Month and ESOP Month. We were able to surprise them with a store lunch party where we presented a special plaque. Each winner also chose a local charity to receive a $1,000 donation in their honor!

Please join us in Congratulating John Martin, Pharm D., Supervising Pharmacist from Dolgeville, NY, and Sara Kline, Customer Experience Advocate from Morrisville, VT!

Our people have been the heart and soul of Kinney Drugs since 1903. We have held this contest for many years, and it is always fun to tally the votes and surprise the two winners!

We will continue opening appointments as we receive additional supply. To schedule an appointment, visit

The ceremony was held at Kinney’s original store location and current downtown offices on East Main Street in Gouverneur.

“In 2023, Kinney Drugs will celebrate our 120th year in business, so we wanted to do something special to recognize our founder’s legacy in Gouverneur,” said Dave Warner, R.Ph., President and CEO of KPH Healthcare Services. “Mr. Kinney changed the trajectory of this community – and so many others. He positively impacted civic and health organizations, generations of employees and their families, as well as the health and wellbeing of folks across New York and Vermont, and now across the entire country. Mr. Kinney was a humble, community-minded person, and we think it would please him that we remain headquartered right here in Gouverneur. We also believe he would be honored by this plaque, which will forever remind people of his and his son’s accomplishments and their legacy.”

Mayor Ron MacDougall even declared today “Kinney Day” in Gouverneur! It was a very proud moment for all of us, including former President Nort Taylor, who celebrated his 100th birthday this year!
