The CVS at 153 Central Avenue in downtown Albany will officially be closed for business by Thursday night.

NewsChannel 13 reported last month that the location would shut down.

Several viewers had reached out, saying they were concerned the move would create a pharmacy desert.

Central Avenue Pharmacy is an independent pharmacy, located just one block away from the CVS.

To make the transition as smooth as possible, Central Avenue Pharmacy will offer free delivery for those who don’t want to walk over.
