Construction of a new Rite Aid pharmacy on North Cannon Avenue in Hagerstown has been stopped indefinitely, a company spokeswoman said Thursday. "We went back and reevaluated the project, and at this time it didn't make economic sense for us, so the project is on hold," said Jody Cook, a Rite Aid Corp. spokeswoman. Cook said there are no plans for the property, which is between East Franklin and East Washington streets, and behind a McDonald's restaurant. Work on the site began last fall.

My family has had some interesting vacations. One example I can give is a trip we took to Florida about eight years ago. I got sick with vomiting and diarrhea the first night we were there. My father ended up going to the 24-hour Rite Aid at about 4 in the morning to get me some medicine. My daughter got sick with the same thing the next night. My father had to go back to Rite Aid at 2 in the morning as she was 4 at the time and couldn't take the same medicine that I did. My father had a tooth abscess on him that same trip.
