ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — CVS Health will be closing one of its pharmacy locations in Rockford on February 26th.

The drug store at 2454 S. Alpine will close, according to the company.

Prescriptions can be filled up to the date of closure. After that, prescriptions sent from a physician will be automatically sent to the CVS Health pharmacy at E. State and Alpine.

This is the second Rockford CVS location to close recently: the N. Main and Riverside location closed on November 6th, 2021.

According to a company spokesperson, “We have 9 additional CVS locations across Winnebago and Stephenson Counties, as well as multiple locations in the surrounding area. Maintaining access to pharmacy services in our communities is an important factor we consider when making store closure decisions. 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.”
