After more than 20 years of service, Gloucester Pharmacy, located at the Walter Reed Plaza, will close for good on Monday.
Pharmacy owner Keith Hodges, who also serves as the area’s representative to the Virginia House of Delegates, said that he is closing his business for a few reasons. His largest competitor since the COVID-19 pandemic started, he said, has been mail-orders. He also wants to be able to spend more time with his family.
“I am definitely sad,” said Hodges.
All of the prescriptions will be transferred to Rite Aid at the Main Street Center and the employees of Gloucester Pharmacy will be able to work at Rite Aid if they so choose.
“It’s going to be a sad day,” said Hodges about the pharmacy’s closing next Monday. The pharmacy opened on Sept. 1, 1998.
Hodges said that he will still be around interacting with the community.
