BLOOMINGTON – Due to financial performance, CVS Pharmacy in downtown Bloomington will soon close its doors.

Located at 210 North Center Street, CVS announced the store will close Jan. 2.

“As part of the regular course of business, we review all of our stores’ financial performance before making such a decision,” CVS said in a news release. “The closure of our N. Center St. store is not a reflection of the hard work and dedication of our employees. In fact, every effort will be made to help place the seven store colleagues into comparable roles at other CVS store locations in the area.”

All prescriptions will transfer to nearby CVS Pharmacy’s located at 100 South Fell Ave. in Normal, 1130 South Veterans Parkway, and 1701 Ft. Jesse Rd in Bloomington.
