Former Downtown CVS Building Still Vacant 9 Months After Closing
The three-story Court Street structure that had been home to a drug store for nearly a century remains vacant several months after CVS ceased operating at the site.
A listing for the property describes it as a "19th century block" building that was constructed in the Civil War era with "historically significant façade cornice and windows."
The CVS store at the site went out of business on November 12. Before CVS acquired the business, a Hamlin's Red Cross Drug Store had operated there since 1924.
The Pyramid Brokerage Company listing shows the asking price for the property as $875,000. That's significantly less than the price some downtown business owners had been told CVS was originally seeking.
The listing indicates the building has about 15,000 square feet of space. The available property includes a total of five parcels. It includes a parking lot with entrances off Hawley and Washington streets.
According to the listing, the property is on the national and state historic registers. It also indicates it's eligible for "historic tax credits."
Representatives of CVS and Pyramid Brokerage Company could not be reached Wednesday to discuss the efforts to sell the property.
