Walgreens Closing 200 Stores in US (Details)

Walgreens is moving forward with closing 200 stores in the U.S., Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands.

The move is part of a three-year plan to reduce costs by $1.5 billion following Walgreens’ December merger with Switzerland’s Alliance Boots GmbH.

Most of the store closures are expected to happen over the next two years, but the company has not yet disclosed which store locations will be affected. Deerfield, Illinois-based Walgreens has dozens of Houston-area locations.

Walgreens’ Retail Pharmacy USA division had opened 71 drugstores in the first half of fiscal 2015 and closed 46 locations, according to the company’s earnings report released April 9. As of Feb. 28, the division had 8,232 drugstores in the U.S., so the planned store closures represent about 2 percent of its total U.S. store count.

Walgreens also plans to reorganize corporate and field operations and streamline its information technology functions to find other cost savings, according to the earnings report.

    1. Odd, they are all over the place here and in SC where out other home is they just built 2 more fairly close to the original one. Here in DE the only choice is Walgreens or CVS and Walgreens it, I believe, the only one that you can go to any Walgreens in any state and fill a prescription, a definite plus if you travel or have 2 homes in 2 different states.
