Introduction

According to Wikipedia, Walgreen Firm, also known as Walgreens, is an American company that runs the second-largest drugstore store chain in the United States, behind only CVS Health. Walgreens is a registered trademark of Walgreen Company.

It specializes in providing picture services, as well as the fulfillment of prescriptions, health and wellness items, and health information.

It was established in 1901 in the city of Chicago, Illinois, and its current headquarters are located in the community of Deerfield, which is a suburb of Chicago.

Pharmacies, 2022/23

According to the November 29 article "Walgreens and CVS Are Closing Pharmacies and Cutting Back on Hours", CVS made the announcement that it will be shutting 300 stores annually for the next three years as part of its efforts to zero in on its digital strategy and execute a new retail footprint plan that is matched to the changing requirements of consumers.

This year, CVS began closing stores in the spring and has kept up the practice ever since.

The retail chain has shut down operations in a number of locations across the country, including those in the states of Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Maryland, California, Florida, Texas, and Georgia.

Quote from the article:

"As we move forward on our strategy to expand Walgreens' role as a leader in the delivery of healthcare, we are focused on creating the right network of stores in the right locations to best meet the needs of the communities we serve," Karen May, senior manager of Walgreens health communications, told SouthBMore.com about the Maryland closure.

Both pharmacy chains are cutting down on the number of hours that their pharmacies are open in the United States.

According to the article published by Berkeleyside, "What we are seeing in some areas is consistent with what many other healthcare entities have been experiencing—staffing challenges due to the ongoing national labor shortage," Kris Lathan, a spokesperson for Walgreens, told the newspaper in an email. "We continue to take steps to help mitigate these pressures, however, there are some instances where we've had to adjust or reduce pharmacy operating hours as we work to balance staffing and resources in the market to best meet customer demand."
