Another Broome County CVS Pharmacy Store Has Been Closed
CVS Pharmacy - which once advertised itself as "Today's Neighborhood Drugstore" - has shut down another store in the Binghamton area.
The CVS store at 345 Main Street in Johnson City closed on Sunday. The location near Wilson Medical Center had been in operation since 1997. Prescription files at the store has been transferred to another Johnson City CVS location at 269 Harry L Drive.
This is the third CVS site in Broome County that's gone out of business in less than six months.
The company closed its downtown Binghamton store at 34 Court Street on November 12. A drug store had been operated at that site for 97 years.
CVS also shut down another Binghamton store at 34 West State Street on the city's North Side on March 1.
In January 2019, a CVS Pharmacy at 68 Main Street on Binghamton's West Side was closed.
When the latest store closing was announced last winter, a spokesperson at CVS corporate headquarters in Woonsocket, Rhode Island said in an email: "There are no plans for additional store closures in the Binghamton area this year."
Last November, CVS announced it intended to close a total of 900 stores over the next three years.
CVS won't provide specific reasons why certain stores are closed. The company says it considers "many factors" in deciding which locations will be shut down.
