The Plaza 69 pharmacy and surrounding businesses closed briefly Nov. 10 after staff received a phone call at around 10:50 a.m. stating there was an explosive device in the store.

The caller said staff at the Paris Street pharmacy had three minutes to evacuate and put drugs in a bag on the sidewalk, according to a press release from Greater Sudbury Police.

Surrounding businesses were advised of the incident, and some chose to close their doors temporarily, but have since reopened.

No explosive device was located. The matter is under investigation.
