CVS has signed on to open a location in the new Westside at Shady Grove Metro development, in the area across from the strip that contains Starbucks, Inspire Nails, Kids Ground, and more (Crabbs Branch Way and Gramercy Blvd). The development is currently home to 407 townhomes, 1,113 multi-family units, over 40,000 SF of retail space. Future development on the east side will contain an additional 345 townhomes and 344 multi-family units.
Late last year 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. However, new CVS locations in MoCo are planned for Clarksburg (across the outlets) and Gaithersburg (Kentlands).
There is still plenty of retail space available at the development, and that can be seen here.
