Update: If you have prescriptions to pick up, starting Friday, February 11 you can pick them up at Duane Reade, at the corner of Court and Montague, unless you’ve made other arrangements. It’s already been noted on this week’s OTW, but today your correspondent’s wife paid a visit to Rite Aid at 101 Clinton Street, corner of Joralemon, and discovered the denuded shelves shown in her photo here. A conversation with an employee confirmed that the store’s last day of operation will be February 10. The employees, who are unionized, will be offered jobs at other Rite Aid locations.
The nearest other Rite Aid location is at 182 Smith Street, corner of Warren, a bit of a schlep. Those of you who, like my wife and me, have relied on Rite Aid to fill prescriptions, may want to switch to another nearby pharmacy.
