CVS is finally ready to unveil its new block-long pharmacy at 42-56 East Houston Street. The plywood curtain was lifted yesterday to reveal a fresh brick facade, and new window scheme. Their token illuminated signage is also bolted to the marquee in four different places. You know, just in case you forget where you are. Looking behind the windows, it appears that most of the shelves are stocked, including the greeting cards aisle.
Signs on the automatic doors indicate the opening date as July 5 at noon.
This latest CVS branch is enormous, weighing in at some 11,500 square-feet (and $1.55 million in annual rent). The space previously housed Soho Billiards until its demise in November 2012. We broke news of their arrival here last spring, but the gut work didn’t actually begin until six months later. Here we are; more sterility.
