CVS plans to enter Boise market with Fairview location

CVS Pharmacy plans to build its first freestanding location in the Boise market according to filings.

The retailer currently has just one location in the area – inside the Target store in Nampa, which it acquired when the discount retailer divested all of its pharmacy operations to CVS.

The store will be placed on the corner of Fairview and Cole – and will bring a reconfiguration of the Westgate Shopping Center, with the demolition of the vacant Zions Bank Building, an empty former dental office and removal of part of the vacant Hastings store

The new CVS will feature a drive-through and a 13,111 square foot store.  Planners also are proposing a neighborhood plaza on the old dental site to accommodate a driveway that would connect with Willshire Drive to the north.
