I noticed that the CVS at the NW corner of SE 15th St and Air Depot Blvd is up for sale. There are two large CBRE signs that have been erected along each thoroughfare. I wonder if the recent pharmacy merger of Target and CVS brought about the sale? It looks like Walgreen's is the winner of this street fight.:boxing2:

It could just be a sale of the property while CVS remains as the tenant.

That's my guess. Tends to happen with places like this. Just a new owner for the building. Always seems weird to me that places like this just dont build their own place and instead lease it, but i guess it's a way to "get out of dodge" if you want to close the store and not have the liability of the holding.

Sort of wish it wasn't that way because maybe we'd have fewer stores being closed so often around the country if the store had more of a tie to the structure. K-Mart, Wal-Mart, etc. Although I consider most of OKC (especially MWC where they are all filled except the recent Penny's closure a couple of months ago...give it a year and something will be there) pretty fortunate in that those big boxers all got filled pretty well. Not true in a lot other parts of the country.

I drove by the former CVS location this weekend. All CVS signage has been stripped from the building. From a distance, I noticed a large, blaze orange sign on the entrance but I was in a rush and did not stop to inspect. This is the first for me to see a CVS close that is located on a heavily traveled intersection.

If it does close for good my guess would be mail prescriptions have gotten big during covid. I know lots of elderly who have switched to mail scripts and e doctor visits. Pre covid that was there big out on the town outings once or twice a week.

This is another huge assumption, I've noticed there is alot less foot traffic at Walgreens and other pharmacies since they started really restricting pain medicines. Seems like I used to have to wait in the drive through or in lines to pickup scripts, but lately I've hit it at the right time and often if I have to wait there may be one or two people in front of me.

There has been a drugstore on the corner since at least the late 70's When we moved to MWC in 1982, it was an Eckerd's Drugstore before CVS bought them out and was in the strip center next to what used to be the theater
