JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (WJHL) — CVS Pharmacy located at 2111 N. Roan St. announced its last day will be Oct. 5.

The drugstore chain hung a note on its entrance doors that said its location at 4209 N. Roan St. will remain in business.

CVS told News Channel 11 that all prescriptions will be transferred to the other CVS location 3 miles away on North Roan Street, and all current employees of the soon-to-be-closed locations have received offers for “comparable roles within the company.”

“Maintaining access to pharmacy services in communities is an important factor we consider when making store closure decisions,” a company spokesperson said in a written statement. “Other factors include local market dynamics, population shifts, a community’s store density, and ensuring there are other geographic access points to meet the needs of the community, including COVID-19 testing and vaccinations.”

There will be two CVS locations left in Johnson City following the closure — one on North Roan and the other on West Market Street.

The reasoning behind the closure is unknown at this time. News Channel 11 reached out to corporate officials for more information. This is a developing story. Stay updated on-air and online at
