Store Larger Than
One It Replaces;
Has A Drive-Thru
BY O.J. EARLY
A new CVS Pharmacy, nearly twice the size of its former location, is now open.
The store, at 506 Asheville Hwy., replaces the CVS that had for years been across the street in the Ingles Shopping Center.
Customers and staff celebrated a grand opening on Saturday.
"It was a big success," said Tim Kozak, store manager. "Everyone seemed to have a great time."
The new building, at 13,000 square-feet, features drive-thru pickup for prescriptions.
CVS employees from the previous location were transferred to the new store, a corporate spokesman said.
"We are able to offer a lot more products and services to our customers," Kozak said. "It's an easier store to navigate."
The store is open daily from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Pharmacy hours are 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.
The phone number is 638-1368, and CVS can be found online at http://www.cvs.com.
The new CVS was built on the site of the former American Patriot Bank branch, which is being relocated to 1118 W. Main St.
