Rite Aid Closing in the Underground

Message from JBG Smith:

“We were recently informed by Rite Aid that it intends to permanently close its 1671 Crystal Square location prior to the expiration of its current lease. At JBG SMITH, we understand that a community-servicing pharmacy is an essential ingredient of any great neighborhood, and we are excited to share the news that we have reached an agreement with another pharmacy to open a location on the same block. We expect the new pharmacy will be ready to open in the late summer or early fall.

“Given that Rite Aid could be departing as early as February, we recognize that there may be a temporary gap in the availability of pharmacy services on the block. You can be assured that we are exploring a number of potential options that would eliminate or at least significantly reduce the length of that gap. In the meantime, here is a short list of other pharmacies in the immediate vicinity:

CVS – 2400 Richmond Hwy
CVS – 1201 S. Hays Street, next to the Pentagon City Metro Station
Rite Aid/Walgreens – 1301 S Joyce Street “
