Marion Hy-Vee Drugstore permanently closed due to derecho damage
The Marion Hy-Vee Drugstore, which has been closed since the derecho storm on Aug. 10, will not reopen.
Christina Gayman, Hy-Vee corporate spokeswoman, said the store, at 2790 Seventh Ave., sustained significant structural damage.
'After much consideration, we have decided not to reopen the drugstore,” Gayman said.
She said the store will transfer all prescriptions at the pharmacy to the Hy-Vee at 3600 U.S. Highway 151.
'Customers have not and will not experience any interruption in their service, and all pharmaceutical and health care needs will continue to be met without any delays,” Gayman said.
Pharmacy customers will receive a letter in the next few days with additional details, she said.
All employees of the Marion Hy-Vee Drugstore have been offered positions at other Hy-Vee locations in the area, Gayman said.
'Hy-Vee will continue to own the property and looks forward to announcing future plans for the location once a final decision is made,” she said.
