TULSA - Nineteen May's Drug, Med-X Drug and Drug Warehouse stores are set to close in Green Country come November, 2News has learned.
The news comes a day after Walgreen's finalized its $450 million acquisition of USA Drug, which owns the businesses.
Twenty-two stores will shut down across the state, says Walgreen's spokesman Jim Graham.
"Our decisions about store closures are based on a number of considerations, including size of the market and proximity to other Walgreens and USA Drug stores and affiliates," Graham said.
He says the company is working to make the transition as seamless as possible for its adopted customers.
"When a store is closed, all customers will be notified of the location of a nearby Walgreens or USA Drug-affiliated store where their prescription information will be transferred," he said. "No other action is needed by pharmacy customers to have their existing prescriptions filled at any Walgreens store."
But nine USA Drug-affiliated stores within Tulsa will stay open, Graham says.
Here's the full list of Oklahoma stores expected to close by November:
