Jackson CVS to close as part of nationwide shuttering

JACKSON (WNE) —- The CVS Pharmacy located inside Target will close March 7, less than three years after its grand opening.

To be clear, the Target store is not closing.

“We’ve made the difficult decision to close the CVS Pharmacy,” said Amy Thibault, communications director for CVS. “All prescriptions will be transferred to a nearby pharmacy to ensure patients have uninterrupted access to pharmacy care. Employees are being offered comparable roles within the company.”

The Jackson pharmacy employs two part-time employees and one full-time employee, she said.

“Several factors are considered when we decide to close a pharmacy including local market dynamics, population shifts, a community’s store density and access to pharmacy services,” Thibault said in an email.

The closure is part of a nationwide shuttering of CVS Pharmacies, according to reporting by Forbes.com. The number of pharmacies slated to close is unknown.

Along with smaller independent pharmacies in Jackson, Albertsons and Smith’s grocery stores both maintain national pharmacy chains.

A Target spokesperson told the Jackson Hole Daily that there are currently no plans for the CVS space located inside the store. Target opened its Jackson store in April 2022.

According to the CVS website, CVS owns more than 9,000 pharmacies, including nearly 1,800 inside Target stores.
