Up and running
ROBERT SNYDER – The new CVS at 328 W. Washington St. in Charles Town has opened. Plans for the 13,225-foot-store initially created a stir among some history lovers who didn’t want to see aged buildings downtown demolished to make way for the structure. Since the new store’s opening on Aug. 19, CVS has closed a pair of older outlets nearby. The new store, which features a drive-through lane, employs the workers from the two former locations on Augustine Avenue and North Mildred Street in Ranson. In all, 20 people work at the new CVS, according to Mike DeAngelis, a spokesman for the company.
