In a statement released March 7, the Idaho-based company said it will wind down operations at the store and close by April 11.

“It is very personal for us when we have to make decisions like this because of the impact we know it has on the people’s lives that work in these stores,” said Ridley’s Family Markets President Mike Ridley in a statement.

The statement said the pharmacy has been sold to Walgreens “and all current Ridley’s pharmacy patients in the Ridley’s on CY Avenue will be able to fill their prescriptions at the nearest Walgreens pharmacy effective March 21st.”

Ridley’s Family Markets operates 31 stores in Idaho, Colorado, Utah and Nevada.

The CY Avenue store was originally a Safeway. It and the Wyoming Boulevard store were taken over by Ridley’s when Safeway was purchased by Albertson’s parent company in 2015.
