Another CVS Pharmacy in Broome County Will Close
CVS Pharmacy is planning to close another store in the Binghamton area.
The store at 345 Main Street in Johnson City is to go out of business on May 1. That's according to a spokesperson at CVS corporate headquarters in Woonsocket, Rhode Island.
All prescriptions on file at the store will be transferred to the CVS Pharmacy at 269 Harry L Drive in Johnson City.
In an email statement, the company spokesperson said "all employees are being offered comparable roles at other CVS locations nearby."
The statement also said: "There are no plans for additional store closures in the Binghamton area this year."
Three CVS Pharmacy stores have been closed in Broome County over the past three years.
The most recent closure was the location at 34 West State Street in Binghamton, which was shut down on March 1.
The downtown CVS Pharmacy at 34 Court Street was closed on November 12. There had been a drug store at that location for 97 years.
A CVS Pharmacy at 68 Main Street on Binghamton's West Side was closed in January 2019.
The Johnson City CVS store is located just west of a Walgreen's pharmacy at 335 Main Street. The Walgreen's store is much larger than the CVS Pharmacy. The two stores are separated by a McDonald's restaurant.
