NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- Walgreen's has confirmed that will close their story at 810 N. Main Street in New Rochelle on July 30th.
"Walgreens has operated this store for about 5 years and the decision to close it was not easy," said Walgreen's spokesperson Phil Caruso in an email to Talk of the Sound.
"Prescription files will automatically transfer to the CVS store about 2 minutes away at 16 Weyman Avenue," said Caruso. "The CVS Pharmacy is the nearest location and we want to ensure our patients have nearby access to pharmacy services."
Caruso said customers do not need take action, the transfer to CVS is automatic.
"We felt this was the least inconvenience for our customers."
The nearest Walgreens is located about three miles away at 222nd Street and Boston Post Road in Bronx. The company expects to place the majority of that store’s employees in jobs at other area stores.
For many years, the Walgreen's site was the home of the Thruway Diner.
A new diner is currently under construction across the street.
