CVS plans new pharmacy in Rx-saturated area

National pharmacy chain CVS continues its push into the Treasure Valley with new stores in unexpected places.

The first is at Fairview and Cole, with part of a shopping center and former Zions Bank being torn down.  Next came a proposal for a location at Capitol & University on the site of a retail center this is barely a decade old.

Now, developers have notified the West Downtown neighborhood association of plans to build a location at 17th and State – a stone’s throw from a Rite Aid location and Albertsons pharmacy.

 

As outlined to the neighborhood group, the State St. CVS would be built at 1625 W. State St. – the current location of a State Farm Insurance agency.  According to the letter, “Multiple buildings and associated drive and parking areas at the southeast corner of 17th & State Street will be demolished to allow for construction of this project if approved by the City of Boise.”

The new CVS would be 13,111 square feet and include a drive-through – about the size of the other two planned Boise stores.

The neighborhood meeting will be held this Thursday at 6 p.m. at the Mariott TownePlace Suites on Capitol Blvd.
