REPORT: Cost Less Pharmacy Customers To Get Prescriptions Filled At University Place Walgreens

The News Tribune is reporting that the pharmacy portion of the Fircrest business will transfer its prescriptions at the Walgreens Pharmacy at 2650 Bridgeport Way W.

Call them pharmaceutical refugees.

The pending closure of Cost Less Pharmacy in Fircrest - which The News Tribune reported Thursday on its business blog - has a tie to University Place.

All records and prescriptions will be transferred to the Walgreen at 2650 Bridgeport Way W. Also, all seven pharmacy employees will be transferred to Walgreens.

I am sad beyond belief. There has been a pharmacy there for as long as I can remember. What a loss to the neighborhood/community. Note: you may have trouble with the link to the Trib article if you are not signed up for their internet version.

You and your staff will indeed be missed. I always think of your store as being the friendliest in town. You feel so welcome the minute you open the door. Thanks to our wonderful government & all of their rules, regulations & taxes another wonderful store is going out of business. So sad.
