There’s still time to nominate local icons for Best of D.C.
Divine Mercy Care, a pro-life pharmacy that opened in Chantilly in 2008, has shut its doors. Divine Mercy Care claimed to treat “every person who comes in as if they are Christ sitting across from you,” only employed pro-life employees, and refused to sell birth control pills (also: candy). I can’t exactly say the DMC had a good run; when I visited the pharmacy shortly after its grand opening in October of 2008, nobody was buyin’ then, either. I guess refusing to sell stuff isn’t a very effective business strategy after all. [Via NBC]
