The Medicine Store Pharmacy closed this week as its owner looks to focus more on wellness in a new location.

Store owner Marty Donovan announced the closing this week after 37 years of providing pharmacy services in Concord. He said all prescriptions have been transferred to the CVS/Pharmacy on Hall Street.

While that side of the business may be gone, Donovan said he will continue providing nutrition counseling, vitamins, supplements and natural remedies through the Wellness Store, he said.

“As sad as I am to see the end of the pharmacy, I know it’s time to expand The Wellness Corner,” he said in part via a press release. “... There is not a shortage of pharmacies in Concord. What I do see is a significant ‘health creation’ shortage.”

The Wellness Corner will have to find a new home in six months, however: Donovan said Ledyard National Bank will closing on the property next week. The bank currently has a financial advising office on Pillsbury Street.

The bank was granted a variety of variances in February for lot setbacks, parking and use of a nonconforming lot, according to zoning board of adjustment minutes.
