The decline of the drug store

This year CVS announced major store closures. CVS will be closing 900 stores over the next three years due to "changes in population, consumer buying patterns and future health needs." These closures represent around nine percent of the retailer's locations.

After the closures, there will still be more than 9.000 locations scattered throughout the country. The company said that it will tailor its remaining locations to fit three areas of its business as part of a broader realignment of its services. “Our retail stores are fundamental to our strategy and who we are as a company," President and CEO of CVS Health Karen Lynch said in a statement.

Another drug store chain, Rite Aid, has also announced that they will be closing sixty-three stores telling CNN that they are making the move to "reduce costs, drive profitability and ensure that we have a healthy foundation to grow." The company also plans to switch the focus of its business away from "beauty and wellness" and smaller household appliances.
