We have several locations nearby, but we don't like shopping there because of the whole "card thing". I wish they would ditch that.

We did go last night because they has something on sale, and they scaned the store card. Too bad the teenage male cashiers were too busy talking and playing with the photo machine as we tried to check out.

I don't like those cards. There's a sale price but you need the card.  Shaw's often has that too.  So i go to Brooks or Rite Aid.

CVS stores have come a long way.  They have an excellent store brand offer.  They took pains to really remodel the Eckerd stores in Florida.  Normally, I don't like to see aggressive remodels....it's so neat to see vestiges of past retail incarnations in a present store; however, most of the Eckerd stores were eminently forgettable decor-wise.

CDS? How about that can be there slogan. On the commercials it'll sing, "Kmart, The Customer Discount Store!" They can get the same people who sung the Thriftway song! :yup:

CVS SEEMS TO BE Moving a lot of their stores out of strip malls and into bigger stores.

Like in HAverhill Mass, it relocated it's westgate plaza stoer across the street, and in Gilford NH it relocated its store in the Wal-mart plaza nearby in a bigger store, and in Keene it moved its stores in the WEst st plaza and Key Road Plaza and opened ONE Bigger location, hence it relocated 2 locations into one store.

They have closed stores. The old School logo was just the CVS, and thats it.

I agree, they really want to have independent stores out of the traditional shopping plazas.  In Seabrook they did just that.  Moved from the Southgate to a new building nearby.

I know they did that in seabrook. I was there months ago.

In nashua they did this, CVs was in the Westside Plaza (amherst st Rt.101A) and a 5 years ago they relocated across the street. ON DW hwy in Nashua, there were 2 CVS (actually 3 one in the pheasant lane mall as well) in the Royal Ridge plaza and Shaw's plaza, CVS rolled the 2 locatiosn into one by relocating them near Best Buy, hence it closed the 2 and relocated. In Salem NH, It was in the stateline plaza and it relocated 1 plaza north, in the Auto Zoen plaza in some vacant space, but it did not remodel the outterior.

In Chelmsford Mass it did this, it relocated across the street. In Manchester nh CVS was in the Bradlees plaza on south willow st and it moved across the street.


I beleive they started like in Lowell Mass. I saw a small free standing store near the Middlesex plaza Market Basket. IN NORTH CONWAY NH Cvs was in the Northway plaza and relocated up the road in a vacant small outlet plaza.

CVS has closed stores: Steeplegate Mall NAshua, Claremont NH, HOoksett NH (It was in the Kmart plaza and closed 10 years ago), SAlem ROckingham mall (the one with Kohl's),

In falmouth, Milford, and Yarmouth mass and warren RI it has the updated ones, meaning they must have relocated from old spots. RITE AID HAS DONE THE SAME THING CVS IS DOING!

On the company website it lists acess real estate.

the new locations have this look:

is it a CVS or Pharmacy?

why can't they do it like this?


It is more like a replacement for with - CVS with pharmacy - you will still see a few stores without pharmacies (mostly in mall locations - though they are disappearing along with the malls) that simply have the CVS part.

Many of them date to the days when CVS did not have pharmacy departments.  They were mostly just HBA stores.

This is correct (and also the fact that, "who is going to go to a mall just to pick up an Rx?"). Notice the fact that almost every mall from the late 90's.....+ does not have a "drug store" in them.

 I have seen CVS ads from the 80's without the /pharmacy that only show health and beauty supplies, candy, film etc.... They were more of a Variety store than a pharmacy until the very late 80's. Only certain (usually the newest) locations had Pharmacy counters (which is why the whole /pharmacy thing came about).

There seems to be a variety of choices/options - for example in the Albany metro area:

The Colonie Center store had a pharmacy (and exterior entrance) until a couple years ago, when they opened a store a couple blocks up Wolf Road - they then closed the pharmacy but kept the store open - this one certainly was a great example of what was noted above about just going in the mall to get an Rx as parking is always hard to find.
The (former) Northway Mall store was always just a CVS (no pharmacy) even though it was in a couple different spots over the years.  
The Latham Circle Mall still has (as far as I know) a Cvs/pharmacy with exterior entrance (and it's one of a few 24 hours stores in the area).  
In Clifton Park they opened a new store on Rt 146 opposite the Clifton Park mall and completely closed the one in the mall.  Same thing with Mohawk Mall (before it was demolished - this mall was unusual in that it had TWO drugstores after the Price Chopper in the mall closed and it's spot was divided into Fays and Paper Cutter).

These are all over the place now aren't they. A lot of great old landmarks were torn down to build these. I agree the ones in the malls didn't have the pharmacies although the ones that were in shopping plazas usually did and had the pharmacy right on the signage to differentiate.  The world headquarters of CVS is in Woonsocket RI.
