Local Pharmacy Closes, Merges with Walgreen’s
Neil’s Pharmacy in West Town Shopping Center in Martinez has closed and merged with the Walgreen’s at Bobby Jones Expressway and Washington Road.
The merger apparently took place last week. Although local Walgreen’s employees would not speak on the record, Buzz on Biz learned that pharmacist Neil Grice is now working at the Martinez Walgreen’s.
According to a sign on the door of Neil’s Pharmacy, all patient records have been transferred to the Martinez Walgreen’s, although it notes that prescriptions can be filled at any Walgreen’s.
All signage and shelving is still up at Neil’s Pharmacy and some products and supplies are still visible through the window. There was no word on when the store would be vacated.
Grice opened his pharmacy in 2003. It was billed as a “Hometown” Independent Pharmacy on their website.
