Posted October 30, 2001 11:33 a.m. EST
HENDERSON — Drug store chain
has announced that it will close its Vance County distribution center, affecting 160 full- and part-time employees.
The closing damages an already fragile economy in Vance County, which has a 10 percent unemployment rate.
Employees will get severance packages and the chance to relocate to other distribution centers.
The closing is part of a larger cost-cutting move at CVS, which will also close 200 of its stores nationwide.
