Massachusetts residents are feeling the sign of the times as brick-and-mortar stores continue to shut their doors. Pharmacy chains like Walgreens and Rite Aid continue to shut down.  As a matter of fact, the Walgreens in North Adams just closed on February 22 and a Westfield location at 78 Main Street is calling it quits this Monday (Feb. 26). Then there are retail outlets like Bed Bath and Beyond and Christmas Tree Shops that went under last year causing less shopping choices in Massachusetts. It's all part of the retail apocalypse.
