CVS, Walmart to cut pharmacy hours

You might have to wait a little longer the next time you pick up a prescription from CVS or Walmart.
Both companies have announced that starting in March they will scale back hours at their pharmacies.

They blame a shortage of pharmacists in the industry.

Some consumers say even if a few stores are left open, it will still make getting essential medications that much more difficult.

Walmart, which has pharmacies in most of its 4,600 U.S. locations, will close them two hours earlier.

CVS will shift or cut hours at about 6,000 pharmacies.
