Benet's Phamacy: Last Day

My wife went into Benet's today to pick up her prescription, an hour before they closed for the day, and the pharmacist told her they would not be open tomorrow... that they sold out to CVS!!!


Too bad they could not hold out a few more years, as I think they could see an increase in business over the next few years as more people move downtown, especially people who want the personal attention found only at a small pharmacy, owned by pharmacists.

Or, maybe it is another thing we can blame on the health insurance companies. Ours recently told us that they would quit paying for prescriptions at Benet's.

Well, they had a good 75 year run.

Wow, that's too bad. At least you guys got in there one last time.

Terrible news...so a CVS will be taking the space where Benet's was then?

There is most definitely a lack of CVS stores downtown.

I don't think a CVS will be opening there, they just will take the customers, orders and inventory to one of their other locations.

Oh I thought you meant that they had sold their pharmacy to CVS. Thanks for clearing that up.
