JAMESTOWN, NY (WNY News Now) – A Jamestown pharmacy has closed their doors, and it’s making lawmakers question what is next for that location.
The North Main Street Rite Aid permanently closed their doors one week ago, much to the surprise of lawmakers.
The building was recently sold according to Director of Development Crystal Surdyk.
When discussing what comes next for the location, some thought it was possible that Walgreens purchased the location. But, those with the Department of Development are still trying to contact the owners.
“We didn’t anticipate that Rite Aid would pull the plug so quickly, and without really any notice,“ explained Surdyk. “We’re gonna try to figure out who the new owners are for sure and what they’re planning to do, and hopefully we’ll have some more information on that soon.”
What concerns lawmakers the most is the lack of access to a pharmacy for those in the area.
