SYCAMORE – Customers of Eggleston’s Pharmacy will need to go to the Sycamore Jewel-Osco if they want to maintain services with Tom O’Shea.

O’Shea, former owner of Eggleston’s Pharmacy, sold his retail business to Jewel-Osco on Monday afternoon and transferred all customer prescriptions to the Sycamore Jewel-Osco, 220 W. Peace Road.

O’Shea and some of his staff will work at the Osco pharmacy.

Karen May, spokeswoman for Jewel-Osco, said there would be no interruption to service during the transition.

Eggleston’s Pharmacy remained open in November after Brown’s County Market closed its Genoa location.

May said Jewel-Osco has no plans of opening a business in the building that housed Eggleston’s Pharmacy and Brown’s County Market.
