A Popular National Chain Just Closed Yet Another Illinois Store
It's not really that surprising anymore to hear about an iconic national chain store that is closing stores, but just how many more will shut down before we end the year?
In the past 6 months, we've heard about the closures of Aldi, Marshalls, TJ Maxx, and Bed, Bath and Beyond stores in Illinois.
National Chain Closing 150 Stores Including Illinois Location
Residents of an Illinois neighborhood will have to get their prescriptions filled at a new pharmacy after a popular chain closed its doors on Wednesday (11/8).
According to CNN, national pharmacy chain Walgreens is closing 450 stores of which 150 are in the United States. As part of a "cost-cutting effort," the closures will save “at least $800 million in 2024," according to the report.
Walgreens Closes on South Side
According to ABC7, Walgreens near the corner of 115th Street and Halsted closed on Wednesday (11/8), and anyone who needs their prescription filled will have to visit the Calumet Park Walgreens location at Ashland and Vermont Avenue.
Even as they're closing stores, Walgreens' vision is to build the "pharmacy of the future."
We are optimizing the model through our micro fulfillment centers, tech-enabled centralization of in-store activities and telepharmacy solutions. -Walgreens Boots Alliance CFO James Kehoe
More closings are planned in the upcoming months but there was no indication if any of those locations are in Illinois.
