CVS buys Medicine Chest
CVS Pharmacy and Medicine Chest Pharmacy announced Monday (Dec. 17) that CVS will acquire 19 Medicine Chest drug stores in Texas, including Fleming Medicine Chest in Lindale, Mineola Medicine Chest in Mineola and Key Medicine Chest in Winnsboro.
Sources said current Medicine Chest employees will be retained.
According to the corporate press release, prescription and insurance information will be available at CVS, with no interruption of services expected.
“We look forward to working with our new colleagues and taking care of our new customer’s pharmacy needs,” said Laura Underwood, area vice president of CVS.
The acquisition is set to take place during the last week of December.
