A well-loved 24-hour pharmacy with 67 locations is about to close permanently in a key city, following several other closures.


There are just hours left for customers to shop at a popular 24-hour pharmacy called Bartell Drugs in Seattle, Washington. This closure is part of a trend, as Bartell Drugs has already closed six other locations this year. The decision to close the Lower Queen Street location was made after reviewing various factors such as business strategy, lease and rent considerations, and store performance. Customers were required to transfer their prescriptions to nearby locations, and employees were offered jobs at those stores. Bartell Drugs is a subsidiary of Rite Aid, which is also facing financial troubles and has closed 25 other locations amid rumors of bankruptcy. Rite Aid executives are reportedly preparing the company for Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing due to its $3.3 billion debt and ongoing lawsuits related to the oversupply of opioid prescription painkillers. This closure is just one example of several businesses across industries facing closures in recent times, including Walmart and various banks.
