Kroger has announced plans to close its 24,000 square foot pharmacy in downtown Austin, leaving about 1,000 people out of work.
The pharmacy will close Monday, May 26 at 10:00 a.m.
The closure follows an announcement earlier this year by Kroger, which had been working to improve its customer service and customer experience.
“We are closing the Kroger pharmacy in our city,” Kroger said in a statement.
“It is with a heavy heart that we announce this decision.
This decision is in keeping with our long-standing commitment to improve our customer experience and provide a better and more efficient pharmacy environment for our customers.
The Kroger chain is owned by Walmart, and its stores are in Dallas, San Antonio, Denver, Houston, Memphis and New York City.”
The Kroger community is our strength and we will be supporting those who will continue to work to create a more efficient and efficient pharmacy experience for our guests and associates,” the company added.
