Bondurant's Pharmacy owner Eric Brewer advised customers to pick up their prescriptions Tuesday, but he declined to comment when asked about media reports that the distinctively shaped pharmacy might be closing.

Customers who called the pharmacy Tuesday were told it would be open until 6 p.m.; then it would close for good.

When asked whether Tuesday would be the pharmacy's last day open, Brewer said he didn't know.

"Customers should pick up their prescriptions today," Brewer said Tuesday.

The independent pharmacy, on Village Drive off Versailles Road, was built in 1974 in the shape of a giant mortar and pestle.

Brewer said that Tuesday was a busy day for the pharmacy and that he might be able to comment on Wednesday.

In regard to the pharmacy's future — whether it will close or remain open — Brewer said he was "bound not to discuss it."
