Get ready for less retail floor space and more room for health care services at one of your local CVS stores.

CVS Health is poised to expand a concept store focused on health care to 1,500 locations by the end of 2021, the company said Tuesday.

The drugstore chain launched the concept store, called HealthHUB, in the Houston area earlier this year.

The premise stems from the company’s effort to reduce its reliance on sales of retail goods and increase its commitment to health care services. The company recently closed 46 struggling stores as it competes with Amazon and other retail rivals for customers.
