JC Super D Drug Store to close
Tuesday, September 11, 2012
Although they have not finalized the acquisition of USA Drug, parent company of Super D Drug Stores, Walgreen’s officials confirmed, Tuesday, that they are taking steps in anticipation of the completion of the transaction, which is expected to occur in mid-September.
One of those steps is closing some locations and one of those will be the Super D on Missouri Boulevard.
“After careful planning and market analysis, on Monday we began to notify employees of our intent to close seven stores in Missouri,” said Walgreen’s Spokesman Jim Graham. “Our decisions about store closures are based on a number of considerations, including size of the market and proximity to other Walgreens and stores and affiliates. We expect to close the stores by November.”
Graham said when a store is closed all its prescription drug customers will be notified of the location of a nearby Walgreens or USA Drug-affiliated store where their prescription information will be transferred.
No other action is needed by pharmacy customers to have their existing prescriptions filled at any Walgreens store.
Graham also said that not all Missouri USA Drug-affiliated locations are closing.
One of those staying open is Linn Drug and Gift Shop in Linn.
