CVS errs on opening date, says Hunters Point pharmacy will open early October

CVS at 1-50 50th Ave in Aug. 2017

The Hunters Point CVS pharmacy that was expected to open by the end of August is slated to open early October, according to a spokesperson who said the company made a mistake when it notified the media in August that it was about to open.

The spokesperson for the drugstore, which is opening at 1-50 50th Avenue, said that an error was made when they were referring to a list that showed details about the pharmacy. “When looking at the list, I was looking at the wrong date,” the spokesperson said.

The pharmacy at the ground floor of the Hunters Point South Commons tower is over 11,000 square-feet. It joins several nearby drugstores in the area, including Nature’s Prescriptions, Vernon Boulevard Pharmacy, and Duane Reade.

The opening was originally announced as 8/13 then when that didn’t happen 8/20. This belies the simple listing error excuse given by a CVS “Spokesperson”. A worker at the store told me that the opening date got pushed back because the store couldn’t get a CO from the city due to a pharmacy related issue. Why the “spokesperson” just can’t say that is unknown but I guess it’s just too much for CVS to give a straight story.
