ROCKFORD (WIFR) - The pharmacy inside the Schnucks location on Rural Street in Rockford is closing.
According to a press release, the pharmacy at 1715 Rural Street will close permanently at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, June 4. Employees at that location will be relocated. Customers can transfer their prescriptions to several other Schnucks locations in the area, including one at 2642 Charles Street, approximately two miles away from the location closing.
"With the larger Rockford Plaza pharmacy so close by, the Rural pharmacy was not serving enough grocery customers," said Mike Juergensmeyer, Schnucks Vice President of Pharmacy in a press release.
The press release also states that a free prescription delivery program is available at all Rockford area Schnucks pharmacies for those with two or more prescriptions. It is $5 for a single prescription delivery.
