Adds to Tuesday and Thursday testing

Though new, the testing announced Thursday is not the only testing taking place at the Uptown location.

In fact, the newly-announced site adds to the testing that Modern Apothecary currently offers at the former fire station from 2 to 6 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays through Dec. 19.
