Bradley Care Drugs, a longtime family-run Bethesda pharmacy, will close Wednesday and be acquired by CVS Pharmacy, the chain announced Tuesday.

Bradley Care Drugs has filled prescriptions and sold personal care products on Arlington Road since 1954, but this month, co-owner Nanien Poser said the business would close in October due to competition and other factors.

“We’re not happy about it,” Nanien Posner said this month. “We just can’t survive.”

Bradley Drugs will transfer prescription and insurance information to the CVS Pharmacy across the street at 6917 Arlington Road, according to CVS. Patients with special pharmacy services will be referred to a CVS Pharmacy Specialty Services on 17th Street NW in Washington, D.C.

Patients can pick up and drop off prescriptions at CVS on Wednesday, the same day Bradley Drugs will close, to make the transition a “seamless experience,” according to a CVS press release.

An employee at Bradley Drugs said co-owners David and Nanien Posner were not available for comment Tuesday morning.

The Posners bought Bradley Drugs in 2003 and hoped to keep the pharmacy in the family, Nanien Posner said when announcing the closure.
