CVS Pharmacy is permanently closing its location in north McKinney, according to CVS Pharmacy Representative Matt Blanchette.

The pharmacy, located at 6161 W. University Drive, McKinney, will cease operations April 4. The location’s closure was decided based on factors such as population shifts, the area’s store density, local market dynamics and more, Blanchette said.

“Maintaining access to pharmacy services in the communities we serve is an important factor we consider when making store closure decisions,“ Blanchette said in an email.

All prescriptions at the pharmacy will be transferred to another local CVS Pharmacy location at 8953 Virginia Parkway, Blanchette said. CVS has eight other locations in the McKinney area, including two MinuteClinic locations and two locations inside of area Target stores. 214-592-9444.
