Walgreens on King Street to Close Next Month

(Updated at 3:25 p.m.) After 14 years in business, the Walgreens at 615 King Street in Old Town will shut its automatic sliding doors for good at the end of business on Monday, March 2.

“The rent went up and Walgreens is out, so we gotta go with the flow,” a store employee told ALXnow. The nine full and part time staffers at the convenience and drug store will be moved to other locations, we’re told.

Another employee said he has worked at the store for four years as a customer service associate, and will work at both the Walgreens at the Bradlee Shopping Center (3614 King Street) and the store at 4515 Duke Street going forward.

“It ain’t nothin’ but a thing,” the employee said. “I’m looking forward to it.”

Charles Harris lives near Bradlee Shopping Center and remembers the store before it became a Walgreens, back when it was a McDonald’s.

“Am I sorry it’s closing? No. I guess I should say I’m sorry, but I can still go to the Walgreens over by my house,” Harris said.
