QwikMed Pharmacy held its formal “opening” event this morning with a ribbon cutting ceremony held inside its doors at 369 Locust Street, Columbia.
While the pharmacy will not officially to the public until Monday morning, July 29, the owner and several well-wishers gathered inside the vestibule entrance to the facility for the ribbon-cutting. Representing the borough was Mayor Leo Lutz; Chamber of Commerce executive, Beverly Shank, also attended.

Once again, the parking lot at the shopping area formerly known as Musser’s had a significant number of vehicles in its parking lot. Many of the vehicles were parket outside AJ’s Surplus Outlet and the store appeared to be doing a brisk business around noon.
Notice all the flags and banners that flutter about the town. Each different, each shouting to compete for a glance.
