CVS/pharmacy and Medicine Chest Pharmacy announced today that CVS will acquire 19 Medicine Chest drug stores in Texas during the last weekend of December. CVS/pharmacy will operate nine of the acquired locations and relocate ten other Medicine Chest pharmacies into nearby existing CVS/pharmacy locations. Medicine Chest will continue to operate its remaining ten locations.

"CVS/pharmacy is committed to helping people on their path to better health in our more than 550 Texas locations. By expanding our presence in the state through the acquisition of Medicine Chest's high quality pharmacies, we will offer our customers greater convenience and access to our services. We look forward to working with our new colleagues and taking care of our new customers' pharmacy needs," said Laura Underwood, Area Vice President, CVS/pharmacy.     

"Medicine Chest Pharmacy is proud to have served the Texas community since 1976 and it has been an honor to take care of our customers' pharmacy needs over the years," said Chad Michel, Chief Operating Officer, of Medicine Chest Pharmacy. "As we continue to focus on our long-term care pharmacies and our remaining retail locations, we believe CVS/pharmacy is the right partner that will maintain the same level of quality care in those markets we have divested.  CVS has worked very hard to make a smooth transition for our customers and employees.  Prescription and insurance information will be available at CVS seamlessly, with no interruption of services."   

The following Medicine Chest pharmacies will relocate their pharmacy business and transfer customer prescription records to the corresponding existing CVS/pharmacy stores on December 31.
