The pharmacy doesn’t necessarily have to close for a pharmacist to have breaks. A pharmacist should still be on site, but patients would have to wait 15-30 extra minutes for the pharmacist to finish his/her break. In retail pharmacy, patients are well enough to walk in the store. Nothing in retail pharmacy is so urgent that it can’t wait a 30 minutes (wait times in emerg are much longer). If there was an emergency (such as a person having a seizure in the store etc, the pharmacist would be obligated to respond during breaks under our code of ethics).
