This week, the Rite Aid Pharmacy located at Torresdale and Levick was permanently closed. For many in the Tacony neighborhood, this was the most easily accessible pharmacy. In the wake of its loss the Tacony Community Development Corporation would like to help connect our residents to other convenient options to ensure no one loses access to medication. Although Rite Aid was the closest for most of us, there are other pharmacies within walking distance, as well as free and paid delivery options.
