Walgens pharmacy hours will end next Thursday, and the pharmacy chain is also planning to close its doors at the end of this week.
“We will have a full-time pharmacy manager on staff and we have to close down all our pharmacy locations and all our stores at the same time.
Our stores are closing at the start of the week, and that means we have a lot of time to get to this point,” said David Matson, senior director of pharmacy operations at Walgarts.
He said the company had also announced a number of changes, including the closure of its health care pharmacy and health food outlets.
Walgreens was one of the few large chain retailers to have its pharmacy hours reduced last year following a number, including its national pharmacy network and its own retail stores, and it is also the only chain to have all its pharmacies closed for the last three years.
The company said the closures would be temporary.
In a statement to the ABC, Mr Matson said the chain was committed to continuing to provide safe, high-quality pharmacy services to the community and the community at large.
“To date, we have provided more than 1.5 million free prescriptions to our community partners in the community in the past five years, and more than 100,000 free prescriptions in the last 12 months.” “
[We] have also committed to working with community partners to ensure all of our community pharmacies remain accessible to their communities, and will continue to look at ways to do that in the future.”
“To date, we have provided more than 1.5 million free prescriptions to our community partners in the community in the past five years, and more than 100,000 free prescriptions in the last 12 months.”
Mr Matson says the company has been operating at around 80 per cent full capacity for a number the last six months.
His comments follow similar moves by major chains like Walgops, Target and Targeting and other big names such as McDonalds and Starbucks.
Mr Wagers comments come as the number of people dying from drug overdoses in Australia is on the rise, and Walgills numbers have doubled in the same period.
On Monday, Walgouts spokesman Nick McBride said the drug store chain was investing in its pharmacy network to help keep its pharmacies running.
It also said it would increase its hours for its pharmacy technicians, but would continue to close pharmacies in the event of a staffing shortfall.
