The national pharmacy chain did not specify a reason for the closure.

The property is still owned by Granite Peak Property Investments, and there have been no recent sales recorded with the Winnebago County Clerk & Recorder’s Office.

Walgreens has nine other locations in Rockford and Loves Park. Store employees have the opportunity to transfer to other locations.
