A pharmacy which opened 110 years ago has closed its door for the last time.

Boots in St James’s Street, Brighton, was built specifically for the chemist in 1914 and has the brand’s insignia engraved in the brickwork.

But the branch shut for good on Saturday leaving many people in Kemp Town disappointed.

“It’s been there for all my life and it means I don’t have to walk all the way up North Street to collect my prescription,” one person said.

“It’s just a shame, and a lovely old building as well.”

The shop was initially due to close on November 19 last year but continued trading into the new year.

People also shared their memories of the store online.

One said: “Sadly it's one of the many shops that Boots is in the process of closing.

I can remember when Boots had a pharmacy in Lewes Road, Brighton, and one in Church Road, Hove, which also had a lending library.”

Another said: “Can't understand why, they were always busy with prescriptions and people buying things. Such a shame, will be greatly missed.”

Boots was asked for comment.
