     When Jacobs’ parents retired last year things began to go downhill in Waltz’ Waldoboro location. At least 3 times I was almost overcharged for prescriptions, once by more than $400 for what ended up being a $19 prescription, until I had them recheck the prices!

    That “One retail location, in Waldoboro” that is remaining is now due to be closed for good on November 17th. We are told all records will be transferred to Rite-Aid in Damariscotta.

    We sure are losing our rural appeal and sufficiency as all the “Mom and Pop” places close and disappear…

       Waltz began to serve long-term care, or LTC, facilities such as nursing homes and group homes. They be in the money now.

    This is a nice success story. However, I’m not very sure that pointing out the location of this business was all that smart. These pharmacy robbing idiots don’t need and more inspiration. I hope they have good security.
