Brook Medical Pharmacy, on Fifth Avenue between 15th and Prospect, closed last month and it looks like a Rite Aid might have purchased it.
Signs in the window indicate that a Rite Aid is slated for the space, which has been gutted. Construction has slowed to a crawl, though, so no word as to whether they'll follow through with those plans. If they do, that'll mean two Rite Aids less than six blocks apart (the next closest one is the behemoth on Tenth Street).
The Brook Medical and Dental Center is still open next door, and while the lady who answered the phone there confirmed that the space next door is no longer owned by them, she couldn't comment as to who, if anybody, would be taking over the space.
