Walgreens store at 84th and Brown Deer Road to close

Deerfield, Ill.-based Walgreen Co. plans to close its store at 8488 W. Brown Deer Road, in Milwaukee, on June 18.
Last year the company closed its store at 4520 W. North Ave. in Milwaukee.

The company plans to close 200 of its 8,200 stores, spokesman Phil Caruso said.

“We are in the process of closing some of our underperforming stores throughout the country,” he said. “The decision to close (the store at 84th Street and Brown Deer Road) certainly was not easy.”

Most of the employees at the 84th Street and Brown Deer Road store will be transferred to other Walgreens stores in the area, Caruso said. Each Walgreens store has about 15 to 20 employees, he said.

Customer prescriptions at the store will be transferred to Walgreens stores at Brown Deer Road and 60th Street and Good Hope Road and 91st Street, Caruso said.

The 84th and Brown Deer Road Walgreens store opened in 1995. The property has an assessed value of $2.3 million, according to city records.
