The CVS Pharmacy located on Western Kentucky University’s campus will permanently close at the end of February.  Conveniently located across from the Kentucky Museum on campus, students have been getting their prescriptions filled in a pharmacy that is within walking distance of the dorms on campus.  

There has been no statement on the official reason for the closing of the CVS Pharmacy released by CVS Pharmacy or WKU.

The Herald contacted CVS but they didn’t respond in time for publication. 

Jace Lux said, “The CVS location near campus is not affiliated with WKU.”

Students who utilize the CVS Pharmacy can get their prescriptions refilled at the two other CVS Pharmacy locations in Bowling Green at 704 U.S. 31 W. Bypass and 1122 Lovers Ln.
