(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) A long-time family business changed hands Wednesday in St. Joseph.

The Apothecary Pharmacy on St. Joseph Avenue made the transition official with a ribbon cutting ceremony.

Paul Stevenson took over as the new owner earlier this year after purchasing the business from his parents. He has been managing The Apothecary for years.

"We're excited to continue that service that long-standing community feel for our business," said Stevenson.

His parents also own Stevenson Family Pharmacy in south St. Joseph.
