CVS is ending all of the stores in the United States, which means that they will close in January 2018, the company announced Wednesday.
The CVS Pharmacy in Las Vegas, the CVS Health Center in Cincinnati, and the CCS Pharmacy and Pharmacy Express in Minneapolis will close on Jan. 1, 2019, according to the company.
CVS also announced it will close all its pharmacies in Atlanta, Atlanta Metro Atlanta, Birmingham, Memphis, and Memphis Metro Area.
In addition, the chain will close its health center in Orlando, Florida, and close its pharmacy in Austin, Texas.
The closures are the result of CVS’s efforts to make it easier for consumers to find, buy and share their medications online.
The company says that it is “working to reduce its impact on our communities by reducing its use of mobile technology and by eliminating retail locations in more than 30 countries.”
CVS said it will continue to collaborate with other organizations to improve the experience for patients.
Covered California and California Health Benefit plans will continue providing pharmacy benefits to eligible patients, CVS announced.
It will also provide additional benefits and information to help consumers learn about their plan’s pharmacy benefits, and will expand access to coverage through its online pharmacy site, Cvs.com.
