New CVS to open Sunday

LOCK HAVEN – The new CVS pharmacy store at Bellefonte Avenue and Commerce Street (near McDonald’s) will open Sunday.

The opening was planned for a few weeks later, according to CVS district manager Mike Matthews. But since Lock Haven University students will return to town this weekend to start the new semester, CVS wants to be available to serve them, he said.

The 13,000-square-foot store will open for business at 9 a.m., Matthews said. It will be a “soft opening,” taking place when the doors are first opened for business. CVS does not hold opening ceremonies, Matthews said, and the corporation normally opens new stores on Sundays.

The current CVS in town, in the Clinton Plaza off Walnut Street, will close its doors at 2 p.m. Saturday.
