Pharmaca announced it was calling it quits this month with a liquidation sale that emptied shelves.
Pharmaca, the wellness and beauty store at 400 First St., called it quits this month after two years in the new development between Cetrella and Safeway in downtown Los Altos.
A retail-only offshoot of an integrative pharmacy founded in Boulder, Colo., Pharmaca’s opening in 2015 drew curious newcomers, but business petered in the months following. The store’s parent company announced the closing only days before inventory entered a liquidation phase, with 50 percent off everything in the store.
