Bob Dylan sang, “The times they are a changing.” The signs have come down from Fred’s Pharmacy on Riggold Avenue.
Fred’s corporate announced a couple of months ago that it was closing their store in Coushatta. The closure was first announced for the end of February. It came this week when the signs were removed.
The Journal asked a few questions and found that the Fred’s answering service still answers your call. Employees say the pharmacy is still open and they are filling prescriptions under Fred’s. They also say they have no further information other than they’re still working.
The Journal also called the Florida headquarters of the pharmacy reported to be taking over the store from Fred’s. A spokesperson in their PR department said she was not familiar with the store in Coushatta. But she added, “I’ll keep you updated in case we plan to move forward with this.”
Back to Bob Dylan…”the answer my friend is blowing in the wind.” When anything changes we’ll let you know.
