NEW: CVS to permanently close store in Fairfax’s Courthouse Plaza

Fairfax City will soon be down one CVS drugstore.

The retail and pharmacy company will permanently shutter its store in the Courthouse Plaza shopping center at 10390 Willard Way on April 18, a spokesperson confirmed to FFXnow.

CVS Health says the move is a “difficult decision” made as part of a broader plan to focus more on digital health care services announced on Nov. 18, 2021.

“Maintaining access to pharmacy services in the communities we serve is an important factor we consider when making store closure decisions,” Amy Thibault, the lead director of external communications for CVS Pharmacy, said by email. “Other factors include local market dynamics, population shifts, a community’s store density, and ensuring there are other geographic access points to meet the needs of the community.”

The Courthouse Plaza store is one of roughly 900 locations that CVS intends to close by the end of 2024, as it evaluates “changes in population, consumer buying patterns and future health needs,” according to a press release on the new retail strategy.

Starting in spring 2022, the company has been closing about 300 stores a year, including a location in Seven Corners that let its lease expire in October. Thibault says no other stores in Fairfax City or Fairfax County are slated to close this year.

All prescriptions tied to the Courthouse Plaza store will be transferred to the CVS at 10090 Fairfax Blvd, though patients can opt to get their medications filled at another location or with a different pharmacy, according to Thibault.

CVS also provides home deliveries for some prescriptions through its website and mobile app.

Employees at the Courthouse Plaza CVS are being offered “comparable roles within the company,” she said.

“Our teams will continue to provide the community with outstanding service at our nine remaining CVS Pharmacy locations in Fairfax,” Thibault said.
