PARADISE, Calif. - The CVS on the Skyway in Paradise is closing, leaving only two pharmacies in town, a Walgreens and a Rite-Aid.

The director of corporate communications at CVS Health said they reviewed the store's performance and have made the difficult decision.

Mountain Candles' owner says her business has its ups and downs and hearing about CVS closing is concerning.

"I'm sorry they are closing cause it's just going to be one more empty building. I mean, when things burn down - and they took everything down - it's not so bad but when you see an empty building it's kinda sad," said owner, Sheri Sanders. "It bothers me a little bit, I was hoping that nothing would close and all these new businesses would open but it is what it is."

CVS will help place employees at one of the four other locations in nearby Chico.

The store also said it understands the disappointment from customers.

On Jan. 2, the store will officially close.
