Changes are coming soon to the Walgreens Pharmacy in Rockmart. According to Alexandra Brown, manager of Corporate Media Relations, the current store at 802 Nathan Dean Bypass, next to Triangle Foods Store, will be closing on Thursday, Nov. 7, 2019.

However, renovations are underway now at 140 Felton Drive, a former used car dealership, to open a new ‘small-format’ store on Friday, Nov. 8. The smaller store will focused on pharmacy-only services and will include a new drive-through service.

There will not be any store closing sales at the current location. All merchandise not transferring to the new store will be sent to other large-format Walgreens locations to be sold. No word yet on business hours for the new location starting in November.  The current store is open Monday-Saturday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Sunday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
