GIANT FOOD STORES NORTH WALES PHARMACY PRESCRIPTIONS TO BE TRANSFERRED TO NEARBY CVS PHARMACY

Carlisle, PA – GIANT Food Stores today announced that all prescriptions from its North Wales Pharmacy located at 107 South Main Street will be transferred to CVS Pharmacy, 799 Sumneytown Pike, Lansdale, PA beginning on Saturday, January 24, 2015. The prescription area of the GIANT Pharmacy will now close for business on Friday, January 23, 2015 at 3 p.m. with the grocery portion closing on Saturday, January 24 at 6 p.m.

The CVS Pharmacy located at 799 Sumneytown Pike is 1.5 miles from the GIANT North Wales Pharmacy.

“While we appreciate the feedback from the North Wales community, GIANT is moving forward with our difficult decision to close both our GIANT Pharmacy and North Wales store later this week,” said Christopher Brand, community and public relations manager. “Both locations are under-performing and outdated. We will be directing our resources from these outdated store formats to efforts focused on newer and brighter facilities.”

As previously announced, the North Wales GIANT supermarket located at 467 Sumneytown Pike will close for business on Saturday, January 24 at 6 p.m.
