A local landmark for years, Bedard Pharmacy has closed its 61 College St. location permanently, the company confirmed to The Buzz.

In an email statement, the company said the store ceased operations Nov. 23 as part of its overall strategy of adapting to the needs of customers. It will continue to serve customers from the pharmacy at 359 Minot Ave. in Auburn.

Bedard said customers were notified and medical records were transferred to the Auburn location. Customers can sign up for free delivery service or choose in-person service at the Auburn store.
