Pharmacy was demolished in order to build larger store on South Water Street
In a matter of months Kent's CVS transformed from bricks and mortar to rubble and back again. Earlier this year demolition crews razed the former building, which was nearly 11,000 square feet in size, in order to build a new store with 13,600 square feet and a drive-thru window. During the $4 million expansion project the pharmacy counter remains open in a temporary trailer on the site.

Southbound lanes will close for pharmacy expansion work
The two southbound lanes of South Water Street will close starting this morning for underground utility work associated with the CVS expansion. The southbound lanes will be closed from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Thursday and Friday. Traffic will be maintained using the turning lane. Last week, workers finished demolishing two houses south of the existing store to make way for the new building, which will include a drive-thru pharmacy.

The closure of South DePeyster Street will not start until Monday. The road will remain open from Erie…

Two houses on Summit Street surrendered to a wrecking crew this week
Two houses were demolished this week to make way for expansion of the CVS pharmacy on South Water Street. The houses are 120 W. Summit St and 126 W. Summit St. had to come down so the store itself could be demolished and replaced with a much larger store that will include a drive-thru pharmacy window. The structures are just two of 61 buildings that have been razed since 2009 or have a date with the wrecking ball this year. CVS plans to operate a temporary trailer at the construction site so customers will still have access to the pharmacy for prescriptions while the new store is built.

The man who attempted to rob the CVS in Stow Jan. 14 was also recently linked to an attempted robbery in Ravenna, according to Portage County Sheriff David Doak.

Kent Planning Commission vote on sign package for new CVS tabled
An hour-long discussion over signs for the new Kent CVS ended with the Kent Planning Commission agreeing to delay its vote on the application. CVS already has approval from the planning commission to demolish and rebuild its existing store with a newly designed, larger building. But the pharmacy chain had to submit a comprehensive sign package under the city's recently adopted sign code to deal with the proposed electronic sign and standard letter signs on the building facade. Brad Rhodes, of SignArt Inc., is designing the sign package for CVS and said the building signs would be somewhat smaller at the new Kent store than the typical CVS store. One example: the "CVS Pharmacy" signs on the Kent building would have a 30-inch letter set …
