Boyertown Landmark Pharmacy Bauses Closes

Editor’s note:  This is why buying local is important.  Very sad!

BOYERTOWN, PA– A fixture in the Boyertown community for 77 years, Bause’s Super Drug Store abruptly closed its doors for good Monday.

Bauses’s issued a joint announcement with CVS on Tuesday stating that effective immediately CVS had purchased Bause’s pharmacy business and transferred all prescriptions to the CVS/pharmacy at 801 E. Philadelphia Ave., less than a mile from the now-closed Bause’s Super Drug Store, 42 E. Philadelphia Ave.

Bause’s owner Jane (Mellott) Beauchamp said “every single full-time employee” of Bause’s was hired by CVS in Boyertown. She noted that these employees were hired on their own merit “as well as the fact that they were part of the BSDS team.”
