The Alexandria location of F.Z. Webb & Sons Pharmacy will be closing on Wednesday, July 24.
“This is a sad day for us,” said Lora Webb.
“Although there is still a need for service in the Alexandria community we just couldn’t afford to keep the pharmacy open due to declining insurance reimbursements. We also tried to sell the pharmacy but were unable to find a buyer for the same reasons,” said Webb.
The Alexandria Pharmacy was purchased by Alan and Lora Webb and Danny and Paula Roller in 1993 and served the community as F.Z.Webb & Sons Pharmacy for 26 years.
“The current phone number and all prescriptions from the Alexandria pharmacy will roll to the Smithville location at 608 South Congress Boulevard as of Thursday, July 25. The phone number in Smithville is 615-597-4185
In the meantime, all gifts and over the counter medicines are 50-75% off at the Alexandria pharmacy.
