CVS has been posting eye-popping profits in recent years, but that isn't stopping the nation's largest pharmacy chain from closing some locations.

The Rhode Island-based retailer said this week that it is in the process of shuttering 46 stores it deems "underperforming."

The move is expected to have a one-time cost for CVS of $135 million, USA Today reports.

CVS has more than 9,000 locations. It reported $98.1 billion in prescription drug revenues in 2017, according to Discount Drug Network, and had a 23.8% market share. Walgreens ranked second.

The closures include a CVS in Springfield, Mo., that was the largest in the entire chain, USA Today said.
