On Friday, Local 4 News broke the news that select Walgreens pharmacies will be closing permanently. Local 4 News reached out to Kris Latham with Walgreens corporate communications and Latham told Local 4 on Thursday via email,

“What we are seeing at some locations in the Quad Cities is consistent with what many other healthcare entities have been experiencing: staffing challenges due to the ongoing national labor shortage.”

Staffing shortages have been plaguing businesses both large and small throughout America, including right here in the Quad Cities.
