Fire caused what was described as a "devastating loss" at the new Fagen Pharmacy in the 34-hundred block of Calumet Avenue on the north side of Valparaiso. Fagen had only recently moved to this location on the east side of Calumet Avenue at Country Club Road after a blaze destroyed a strip mall just to the south, on the opposite side of the street, in the 31-hundred block of Calumet Avenue, last June, where Fagen and other businesses were located.

Statement on the fire at 3400 Calumet Ave, Valparaiso
As of late last night, we suffered a devastating loss with a fire at our 3400 Calumet Ave, Valparaiso location. We are so grateful that nobody was injured. Thank you to the Valparaiso Fire Dept for working under the worst conditions to try to save the building.
We we were so excited. We were only 2 weeks out from opening the entire building by expanding across all 3 suites. We have occupied only 1 suite of it since we moved after the Jimmy John's electrical fire in the strip mall in June.
Adversity is temporary. We pull off amazing things while working through difficult times. This time will be no different. We will provides updates as soon as we have them.
We can continue to take care of you from any of our other locations. You're presciptions are available system wide and can be filled at any Fagen Pharmacy.
