The Spring Creek Pharmacy, located in the historic Springville rail depot, closed its doors last week and its customers’ files have been moved to Rite Aid on Main Street in the village.
Ashley Flower, a spokesperson for Rite Aid, confirmed the last day of operation for Spring Creek Pharmacy was Wednesday, Nov. 15. The Springville Rite Aid store began serving Spring Creek’s customers the following day.
“It’s a seamless transition,” Flower said. “(Customers) don’t have to do anything. Their files automatically transfer over to our store safely and securely.”
No plans have been announced publicly for the Springville rail depot building, which is owned by Dave and Lisa Williams Enterprises, according to information provided by Erie County GIS. A call made to Dave Williams was not returned.
The building, which has an address of 227 W. Main St., was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1991, according to the National Park Service. It was built in 1910 by the Buffalo, Rochester and Pittsburgh Railway.
Flower said it’s “business as usual” for customers of the former Spring Creek Pharmacy, except they’ll be picking up prescriptions at a new location, Rite Aid at 40 W. Main St. She suggested those with questions about insurance speak to a pharmacist at the store.
“And with any other questions they might have, we have a whole team there to help with whatever their needs might be as they transition,” Flower said about Spring Creek patrons. “We want to make it as seamless as possible for them.”
