Almost four years after we first reported that CVS would be taking over the old Tommy Joe’s/O’Donnell’s location in the Kentlands (311 Kentlands Blvd), the store has set an opening date. The grand opening will take place on Sunday, February 19 at 8am, according to a sign on the door (pictured below).
In 2021 CVS announced that it would be closing approximately 900 stores over the next 3 years due to “changes in population, consumer buying patterns and future health needs.” A CVS location on Veirs Mill Rd. closed last November, Rockville Town Square CVS closed in April, and the Twinbrook CVS closed in August. New CVS locations are still opening, however, with a new store in Clarksburg and one coming soon near the Shady Grove Metro station.
