Deerfield, Ill. — Walgreens plans to close approximately 200 stores across the U.S. starting this fall as part of a cost-management program. Specific store locations have not been disclosed, but the new closures represent less than 3% of Walgreens’ U.S. footprint.
The announcement was made in a Walgreens Boots Alliance regulatory filing the first week of August. The Deerfield, Illinois-based company had previously unveiled plans to close 200 stores in the United Kingdom.
Currently, Walgreens operates more than 18,500 stores in 11 countries.
