Construction on CVS at 2000 Penn. will begin this month

Construction on the CVS at 2000 Pennsylvania Avenue will begin before the end of August but the store is not scheduled to open for business until February, said the company’s director of public relations, Mike DeAngelis.

After filing for building permits in March, the retailer finally received the go ahead from the city this week.

The new CVS, which will move into the former Tower Records space, will be the fifth CVS within a three block radius of campus.

Despite some student and neighborhood displeasure, DeAngelis said he expects the new CVS will be a positive addition to the campus.

“We look forward to serving the GWU community at our new store and will make every effort to minimize inconvenience to the surrounding campus during construction,” DeAngelis said.

Like other nearby locations, when the pharmacy and convenience store opens its doors in early 2009, GWorld will be accepted.
