CVS pharmacy recently began construction on a new 13,225-square-foot store in East Dallas on the west corner of Ferguson Road at Lakeland, a site that formerly housed a laundromat.
When the new store opens in late December, the pharmacy/retailer plans to close its significantly smaller existing location across the street at 8686 Ferguson, says Stephanie Cunha, spokesperson for CVS.
“The larger store will allow us to offer our customers a wider selection of products,” she adds.
Because the project meets the site’s existing community retail zoning, city staff recommended approving the pharmacy when it was presented at the City Plan Commission on May 7.
The new location will maintain its own parking lot with 60 spaces for shoppers.
