The longtime neighborhood staple Baxter’s Pharmacy of West Haverstraw is closing tonight, April 24, the Rockland County Times has confirmed.

The news comes as a surprise to Baxter’s thousands of customers. The proprietors of Baxter’s, which has been located in the Samsondale shopping center for decades, continue to operate a pharmacy by the same name in Goshen, Orange County.

A pharmacist at Baxter’s Goshen storefront said prescriptions waiting to be filled at Baxter’s in West Haverstraw will be transferred to a nearby Walgreen’s.  The closest Walgreen’s is Stony Point.
