LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – Walgreens will permanently close four of its Louisville locations next month.
The company said its store at 4149 Taylor Blvd., near Bluegrass Avenue between the Beechmont and Hazelwood neighborhoods in southwest Louisville, will close Nov. 7.
The store at 7500 Terry Road, near Greenwood Road in the Pleasure Ridge Park neighborhood, will close Nov. 9.
The 700 Algonquin Parkway location on Taylor Boulevard in the Taylor Berry neighborhood near Churchill Downs will close November 14.
The store at 200 East Broadway and South Brook Street in downtown Louisville will close Nov. 17.
Walgreens cited market changes and customer needs as reasons for the closures.
“As we grow as a leader in healthcare, we are focused on best meeting the needs of patients and customers in the communities we serve by creating the right network of stores in the right locations,” said a spokesperson in a statement emailed to WDRB News. “When faced with the difficult task of closing a particular location, several factors are taken into account, including local market dynamics and the changing buying habits of our patients and customers, for example.”
The company said customers would have their prescriptions sent to the nearest Walgreens and they would be notified of the change.
“In most cases, patients don’t have to do anything. We automatically transfer their pharmacy records to the nearest Walgreens,” the spokesperson continued. “Patients are notified of any changes by mail and other means to provide details of continued access to their prescriptions and other services.”
