Grand Street Rite-Aid to Close in 2 Weeks
The Rite-Aid store on Grand Street, often frequented by the late Sheldon Silver, is set to close for good in two weeks.
We’re told that, after decades at 408 Grand, the final day in business is May 16. Apparently, all prescription records were transferred to the Duane Reade on Delancey Street. Customers are urged to purchase refills in haste, as the store is not replenishing stock.
The closure comes shortly after Rite-Aid corporate announced earlier this year cost-cutting measures resulting in the shutter of 145 “unprofitable” pharmacies.
This Lower East Side Rite-Aid is one of the main pharmacies servicing the far eastern edges of Grand (also CVS). It opened here more than thirty years ago, and was last renovated in 2016.
