No...those create different meanings. A across from the pharmacy means that it is separate and outside the pharmacy...like another store or place. The grocery store is across from the pharmacy.
It's across the pharmacy isn't really natural...I mean you could say I walked across the pharmacy to get some deodorant...but it isn't natural. You would say things like...
I walked across the street to get to the bar.
I walked across the bridge with my eyes closed.
Does that makes sense?
