A local pharmacy will close its doors on Connecticut Avenue after more than 30 years in business.
Tshiffely Pharmacy, located at 1330 Connecticut Ave. NW, is slated to close on Dec. 18, but not because of financial troubles, said pharmacist and co-owner David Toth. The building the pharmacy is housed in will be renovated soon and the drug store’s owners decided to let their lease expire, he explained.
Toth said he will continue doling out prescriptions at the pharmacy’s other two locations on 19th Street and K Street.
“We decided to combine everything into the other two stores,” he said. “One of which is a block and a half away.”
Though Toth didn’t know what would move in once the pharmacy closed, he speculated it would “probably be a bagel place.”
