From what I have read, this Walgreens will be closing on November 7th. It seems to have not done as much business as CVS right across the street.

Anecdotal, but every time I've seen Walgreens and CVS beside each other, Walgreens would be the ghost town of the two while CVS would be packed. I guess people generally prefer CVS.

I think they opened there way too soon. The Walgreens was open for a couple years before there was anything else on that corner, meanwhile CVS is directly across the street in a shopping strip with a Harris Teeter and a bunch of little places. So much simpler if you’re shopping at HT anyways to walk over to CVS, than to either drive right across the street or cross Carpenter Fire Station on foot to get to the Walgreens. By the time Aldi opened and drew people to that side of the street, most people who live nearby had been going to CVS for years. I think they should have built it by the newish HT on 55 instead.

That's too bad - it should have survived considering the growing housing community there. Agree that it might have been built too early. And CVS and Walgreens are always close to one another, so that's not the issue. Agree with LM117 that CVS has done a better job with the "deals" that people think they are getting - big sales, ExtraBucks marketing, etc.

Some of my elderly neighbors go to that Walgreens only for the pharmacy - as I've heard the pharmacists there are great. I haven't used the Walgreens pharmacy, but the CVS pharmacy across the street is not very good, with mistakes with meds all over the place.

This Walgreens has an excellent Pharmacy and I wish that corporate will reconsider this decision.

The Walgreens in downtown Chapel Hill is closing too. Is Walgreens pulling back?

Walgreen's is closing 200 store locations nationwide. A quantity of pharmacies at affected locations have relocated into pharmacy-only locations.
