The Potomac Village will soon have a new look as businesses shift and change.

As of Oct. 29, the Potomac Village Pharmacy has been taken over by the Eckerd company. The Clearwater, Fla., based company operates over 2,700 drug stores in 23 states, according to their website.

The new pharmacy will move into what used to be the Gap on River Road.

The Potomac Village Pharmacy had previously occupied the space, and Eckerd will move into it after it completes a remodeling project.

The Imaginarium, which sits next to the former location of the Gap, will also be closing.

Imaginarium’s parent company, Toys “R” Us, plans to close all freestanding Imaginarium and Kids “R” Us stores by Jan. 31.

“We don’t expect to close the stores before Christmas, but no final decision has been made on that at this point,” said Pam Faatz, a spokesperson for Toys “R” Us.

Other Imaginarium locations in the region include stores in Gaithersburg, Olney and Reston, Arlington and Alexandria, Va.
