EDISON -

Walgreens is set to close 200 stores around the U.S., a move that will save the company $1.5 billion.

It's Walgreens’ largest round of closures since 2015, when it also closed 200 stores.

The closures represent less than 3 percent of the company’s 10,000 locations in the country.

According to a spokesman for Walgreens, the company does not plan to release the complete list of store closures.

The spokesman also declined to share any more details about which locations will close.
