(CNN) – Walgreens is planning to shut down about two-hundred stores.
The retailer does not plan to announce which stores will close, but says they are in areas that have multiple locations.
Walgreens says the closures represent less than three percent of its U.S. store portfolio.
Most affected employees are expected to be placed elsewhere in the company.
Walgreens competitor CVS closed 46 stores earlier this year.
No word on if any stores in the CSRA will be affected.
