PARSONS, WV (LOOTPRESS) – Governor Justice has sent a letter to Walgreens requesting that the company reconsider its decision to close its Parsons location.
“I sent a letter to Walgreens’ leadership asking them to reconsider the closure of their Parsons store. West Virginia does not view favorably the actions of major corporations cherry-picking the locations they wish to serve and leaving smaller communities without essential services,” Gov. Justice stated.
“This issue deeply concerns me because I understand the impact it will have on the local community and our neighboring areas.”
The Parsons Walgreens is the only chain pharmacy in the town.
Parsons City Administrator Agnes Arnold issued a public notice to the community about filing complaints regarding the closure.
“Anyone wishing to file a complaint with Walgreens regarding the closure of the Parsons store is urged to call 1-800-WALGREENS (1-800-925-4733),” Arnold stated in the notice.
According to the Walgreens website, the store and pharmacy are still open and operating under normal business hours.
