COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - Officials announced Longs Drugs will close its retail pharmacy stores on March 24.
The sale of the Longs pharmacies now means CVS will serve the company’s patients and take on their prescription records.
“Letting go of our retail patients and our connection to those communities we’ve served for so long is difficult,” officials posted on Facebook on Tuesday. “The Longs legacy stretches back nearly 100 years, and in that time, our teams have served generations of families, supported countless health and community efforts, and have become beloved fixtures in those communities. We are immensely proud of the care that we have had the opportunity to provide for the generations we have served over the years.”
Although the company’s retail pharmacies are closed, Longs will continue to operate its long-term care and pharmacies that serve health clinics.
