How depressing. A pharmacy that has been there for years and years and years. In fact, Nancy Fleming, who was Miss USA in 1961 worked there when she was a teen. It was a local pharmacy that when you walked in, they knew your name. When you were looking at the shleves of cold medicine, the pharmacist came over to you and asked you what you needed and helped you choose the right product. A place where you could buy a t-shirt of your beloved Montague Wildcats and the sale of that t-shirt was donated to the sports program at the school.

A place that was right around the corner from my house so I could walk there when I needed to pick up a prescription. A beloved Montague staple now closed.

A crushing blow to a small town who loved the place and the people who worked there. I wish you all the best of luck in the future.

On a side note, the only thing I can figure is that the introduction of Rite-Aid and then Walgreens into our community over the last few years has pushed the small town pharmacies like Todd's over the edge. I am truly saddened by this closure as it ends a piece of Montague history.

It isn't the chain pharmacies that are causing the problem it is people's insurance plans that aren't paying the pharmacy enough for it to stay in business.
