Employees previously had told WNBF News that the target date for shutting things down was November 29, although one worker had said the closing could occur sooner.

There has been a drug store at the 34 Court Street site for nearly a century. Hamlin's Red Cross Drug Store opened there in 1924. It became a CVS operation in 1975.

CVS owns the property where the store is located. People familiar with the site say the Rhode Island-based company is trying to sell it for $2 million.

CVS representatives have not responded to a request to comment on the store closing.

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years.
