CVS Pharmacy (3)

3/22/2007 Update:

According to David, the “meet and greet” Customer Service rep at CVS, they plan to start the construction to expand the downtown location into the old Sam Goody location around August of this year. Along with more space, they also plan to reduce shelf height to make accessibility easier and give the store a less cramped feeling.

    Interesting.

    Next to the NYSC uptown location, there’s a huge space that’s being worked on. Looking on the yellow piece of paper on the door, it’s a construction notice for CVS. Can anyone confirm that they’re putting in a CVS there, too?

    Would be such a shame. My wife was hoping for a Banana Republic. 😀

    Great idea, maybe Randy and his crew will stop panhandling in front of that location now that it’ll be occupied.

    I do not have much to say about the downtown CVS, BUT since you started a new thread, let me rant about the mid town location:

    This place is the most backwards and slowest place in town. Being across the street from Hoboken High leads to two things that tend to infuriate me.

    1) Packs of Hoboken High kids wandering around being as kids are obnoxious. They are yelling at patrons and for all intensive purposes loitering. Kids will be kids but PLEASE get them out of CVS especially since I read about how much shoplifting goes on here (They have a sign about no bags when you walk in)
    2) (And this is my real peeve) High School age kids working behind the counter. These kids can’t seem to do anything fast except go on a break. There is never more then one line open no matter how long the line is , sometimes the photo lady is there (she is sweet and helpful) but who ever is at the main counter makes a 5-minute job a 20-minute ordeal. I have waited inline for so long just for a few items.

    It has become comical how long it takes in there. Why do we keep going back you ask? Well the pharmacy there is pretty good, with a good staff and surprisingly efficient. They are also close to where I live so its not like I have much of a choice. So I figure why not rant about it. I have heard good things about that little mom and pop shop around the corner does anyone use them? I know the also deliver.

    I don’t think “ahobokenguy” knows zip about Hoboken:

    1) Packs of kids live in every community. Do u know what a community is?

    2) I’d rather see kids working in a store instead of hanging out on the streets. Did u have a job as a kid or did Mommy and Daddy provide u with a new BMW every year?

    As 4 that little “mom and pop store”, Will CVS run to your house when your home when your home alone with a sick child and deliver a perscription? You have to be crazy not to shop in place like this. Hoboken has small town charm because of places like this. Keep shopping in the chain stores and soon Hoboken will be just like everywhere else.

    Before u call yourself “ahobokenguy” wake up, open your eyes and take a look around u.

    do you mean the pharmacy on the corner of 9th and willow?
    it’s fantastic. very friendly and helpful.

    the lines at cvs downtown are absurdly slow. i hope they add a ton of new registers and people to work them, and a better system than choose a line and then you’re stuck on it.

    The 14th/Park location looks to be days away from opening. Does anyone know?

    Went to the downtown location yesterday and when I go to checkout at the register, the aroma of fecal matter engulfs me. Absolutely gross. Hey CVS, do us all a favor and clean the carpets up front. Better yet why not get some new ones. Has anyone else noticed the stanky smell of CVS?

  8. Colonblow says:

    I smelled something too but I figured I just got behind someone who stank. How strange. WTF.

    I thought it was the guy with the Preparation H handi wipes in front of me, guess not.

    Has anyone heard that the CVS on Clinton and 8th is being torn down and a large condo building will be taking its place along with the large parking lot attached to it?

    Have not, but I could understand it happening in the future. Question to ask is who owns the property.

    that’s the ghetto CVS…the HS kids steal more from that place than they do from the yuppies!

    knew it was just a matter of time – pretty big piece of property. that would suck for me – close to my house and great for shopping post 9pm. i agree it is not run efficiently with the kids, but cut them some slack – they are kids working a minimum wage job.
