Columbia’s closest Rite Aid pharmacy location has closed as of March 6.
Located at 2833 Broadway, by 110th Street, the drug store has long been a site of low-cost snacks and pharmaceuticals for Columbia and Barnard students, offering competitive prices compared to the nearby Duane Reade.
The reason for the store’s closing is unknown, although the location has already gone into liquidation.
The flier that Rite Aid employees distributed before the store’s closing states that all prescription files and records will be available at all other Rite Aid locations.
Nearby Rite Aid stores can be found at 97th Street and Columbus and 117th Street and Frederick Douglass Boulevard.
