Massive Retailer Closing 2 More Massachusetts Locations
Massachusetts experienced many changes in the retail business last year mainly the closures of brick and mortar stores. Mainstays including Christmas Tree Shops and Bed Bath and Beyond completely went out of business while Rite Aid and Walgreens had to close locations throughout Massachusetts. These closures occurred for a variety of reasons including changes in buying habits (online shopping), dynamics in the local market, and underperformance for example.
Massachusetts is Set to Undergo More Closures Soon
One retail business that is continuing to shut down locations in Massachusetts in 2024 is Walgreens. Walgreens recently shut down its sole location in Boston's Roxbury neighborhood much to the dismay of local citizens. Now, two more locations in Massachusetts will be closing soon including the following:
- North Adams - 50 Lincoln Street - Closing Feb. 22
- Westfield - 78 Main Street - Closing Feb. 26
