A popular retailer now plans to shutter 150 stores by August 2024 with locations already beginning to close down this year.

“Pharmacy giant Walgreens has stated they plan to close 150 stores by the end of August 2024, and unfortunately for Massachusetts residents, one store in the state is closing next week,” reports Ash Jurberg.

“After careful consideration, we have decided to close your neighborhood Walgreens at 472 Lincoln St. in Worcester on Thursday, November 9, 2023.

We regret any inconvenience this may cause but hope to make the transition as seamless as possible,” the company said in a statement.

Reuters reports that Walgreen is expected to cut at least $1 billion in costs for 2024.

The company plans to shut down unprofitable stores after Wall Street expectations for 2024 dropped significantly.

Walgreens has been affected by a steep drop in sales of COVID-19 products, persistently weak prescription drug demand, reported walkouts by its store staff and weak sales of its consumer health products due to high inflation.

“Our performance this year has not reflected WBA’s strong assets, brand legacy, or our commitment to our customers and patients,” Interim CEO Ginger Graham said in a statement.

“Walgreens has lost customer share in areas like beauty and personal care. Some of this is because prices remain too high and are uncompetitive – something more and more shoppers won’t tolerate in the current environment,” GlobalData Managing Director Neil Saunders said.

Walgreens had said in June it would close its stores at 150 locations in the United States.

The company also named Tim Wentworth, a former Cigna executive, as permanent CEO on Tuesday.

As of today, shares of the pharmacy chain are down nearly -6% this month and more than -43% this year-to-date.
