SPRINGDALE, OH (FOX19) - Some bad news for a local Wal-Mart.

The store at 600 Kemper Commons Circle has announced it is closing its doors at the end of January.

All of the employees will be offered positions at nearby stores, including ones in Forest Park, Evendale, West Chester and Deerfield Township.

Pharmacy customers are being asked to call or visit the Wal-mart pharmacy in order to transfer their prescriptions to a nearby location. After Jan. 31, all of the prescriptions will be transferred to the store on Smiley Avenue in Cincinnati.

Wal-mart representatives say this will also be the case for the store's vision center customers. They will be able to pick up their glasses or contacts from the Smiley Avenue location as well.
