|Edloe's Pharmacy Closing|
Young Broadcasting of Richmond Posted on 9/21/2012
A Church Hill pharmacy, open for more than 60 years, will be closing its doors next week.
Edloe's Pharmacy, open at 25th and Carrington Streets since 1945, will close next Tuesday, a move which upsets many long-time customers.
Doctor Leonard Edloe tells 8News he will turn the store over to CVS, after doing everything he could for his customers.
"We would find a way if we could, to get your medications covered," said Edloe.
"I'm a little unhappy because anything I needed was here, old remedies you can always find here," said long-time customer Joanie Gillison. "People are very friendly, treat you like family more than a customer."
Edloe, also a lecturer and pastor, said he knows the void that will be left behind once his business is gone.
"I'm still going to be around to make sure they get the right drugs, to help the people when they need to be helped," Edloe said. He also said he plans to open a private practice to offer advice on medication.
