Walgreens Is Closing Four Different Pharmacies In The Quad Cities
After much speculation and rumors, it has been confirmed that four Walgreens pharmacy locations in the Quad Cities will be closing down. The four Walgreens pharmacies closing include a location in Davenport, Rock Island, East Moline, and Moline.
On Friday, Local 4 News broke the news that select Walgreens pharmacies will be closing permanently. Local 4 News reached out to Kris Latham with Walgreens corporate communications and Latham told Local 4 on Thursday via email,
“What we are seeing at some locations in the Quad Cities is consistent with what many other healthcare entities have been experiencing: staffing challenges due to the ongoing national labor shortage.”
Staffing shortages have been plaguing businesses both large and small throughout America, including right here in the Quad Cities.
