Another Essential Retailer Now Makes A Painful Closure in Illinois

Another essential retailer now makes a painful closure in Illinois after the company recently shuttered locations in the area.

Another CVS location has shut its doors after the company closed others in the area as it continues to purge stores across the country.

In 2021, the popular pharmacy brand announced major closures, targeting 900 locations.

As of 2024, 300 closures have yet to happen, reports The-Sun.

However, the company announced earlier this year that it was aiming to close the remaining stores by April.

Stores are still closing across the US including a location in Peoria Heights, Illinois — about 80 miles north of Springfield, according to Peoria Journal Star.

Residents must say goodbye to the location at 4521 North Prospect Road.

Amy Thibault, a spokesperson for CVS, said that the company’s decision to close the location was a “difficult” one, according to the outlet.

She also said the company tried to balance how it could maintain pharmacy services but struggled due to the state of the local market, no residents, and the sheer number of competitors in the area.

Anyone with prescriptions at the location will now be able to pick them up at the 1200 West Main Street location, a five-mile drive from the center of Peoria Heights.

Employees at the store will also be offered comparable roles within the company.

CVS has closed three other locations in Peoria in the last five years.

One location shut in the fall of 2019, another in summer 2021, and the third in late 2022.

With the North Prospect Road closures, the city will now have only five locations.

Many CVS locations are boarded up across the US including a location on the Upper East Side in New York City.

The store at 1241 Lexington Ave., near East 84th Street, shut on May 16, reported the local Patch.

It closed following the shutdown of two more in the area that happened in September 2023 and January 2024.

Thibault gave an almost identical statement for all three closures.

She said it was a “difficult decision” but “nearly 60” locations still remain in the area.

An unexpected restaurant now abruptly closes 7 locations in one state after revealing plans to shutter a total of 36.

TGI Fridays is closing a total of seven restaurants in one state as part of the company’s ongoing growth strategy.

This comes after the chain abruptly closed 36 locations across 12 states in at the beginning of the year, per The-Sun.

The restaurant chain will pull the plug on seven locations across the state of New Jersey in the coming weeks.

Today, Fridays will welcome in famished diners at its location in Brick for the final time.

“As we continue along our path of transformation to revitalize the Fridays brand and implement a long-term growth strategy, we see a bright future for TGI Fridays,” said Weldon Spangler, CEO of TGI Fridays earlier this week.

“We are at the helm of a pivotal moment that will allow us to explore boundless advancement, expansion, and innovation to keep delivering ‘That Fridays Feeling’ that our fans know and love.”

Before the closures, TGI Fridays had about 270 US locations, according to the company’s website.

“As part of the store closures, TGI Fridays is offering more than 1,000 transfer opportunities, which represents over 80% of total impacted employees,” the company previously said in a statement.

“Our top priority has always been delivering a superior experience for each and every TGI Fridays guest, and we’ve identified opportunities to optimize and streamline our operations to ensure we are best positioned to meet – and exceed – on that brand promise,” said Ray Risley, US president and chief operating officer, in the release.

Eight other locations were sold to former CEO Ray Blanchette, a longtime stakeholder who will acquire the previously corporate-owned restaurants.

The sale comes as major changes have been made to the brand’s leadership, including the news of Weldon Spangler being made CEO.

“As we continue along our path of transformation to revitalize the Fridays brand and implement a long-term growth strategy, we see a bright future for TGI Fridays,” said Spangler in a statement.
