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. The independent pharmacy was built in 1974 in the shape of a giant mortar and pestle.
