CVS Consolidating

CVS is the largest drugstore in the country. The company announced plans to consolidate in September 2023 and start a new company called Cordavis, aimed at providing cheaper drugs for customers.

"CVS Health will reduce store density in certain locations and close approximately 300 stores a year for the next three years."

Several CVS stores closed in 2023 and 900 more are expected to be shut down by the end of 2024.
