The eccentric drug store sequence eventually grew to 9 stores in southeastern Massachusetts – dual in Easton and 7 in Raynham, Lakeville, Halifax, Plymouth, Carver, Sandwich and Assonet.

On Dec. 18, a Sedells sealed their remaining 3 stores in Lakeville, Assonet and Carver, and sole a stores to CVS pharmacy after determining to retire, Sandra Sedell said.

“It was bittersweet, it unequivocally was,” Sandra Sedell, 71, a longtime Brockton resident, pronounced Thursday.

She removed flourishing a business with her husband, Arthur, 71, a pharmacist, into a multimillion-dollar operation with 168 employees, before incomparable pharmacy bondage changed into a area.

“In a beginning, it was only my father and we and we worked it 7 days a week,” she said. “It was only mom-and-pop stores and there were no bondage during that point. We came in and started discounting everything.”

Their sons, Brockton residents Tom Sedell, 44, who mislaid a bid in Brockton’s Ward 1 City Council competition in November, and Chris Sedell, 41, a pharmacist, both have worked in a family-run business, she said.

The Sedells sole 6 of their stores to a Stop Shop supermarket sequence about a decade ago, she said.

CVS pharmacy purchased a essence of a remaining 3 stores, pronounced Sandra Sedell, who is now looking to franchise a space of a empty stores in Lakeville and Carver.

“It was a smashing experience,” she pronounced of owning an eccentric drug store sequence for scarcely 4 decades. “It’s something that both Arthur and we feel that we’ve been sanctified with. It was a lot of tough work, though a dreams did come true.”
