Closing of CVS Pharmacy at 110 Front St. in Worcester Confirmed

The CVS Pharmacy located at 110 Front St. in Worcester, Massachusetts will be closing its doors on November 1st, according to a spokesperson from the company. The downtown location has been a convenience store and pharmacy, serving the needs of downtown residents and workers. Its closure raises questions about the future of the property.

The Front Street location has a rich history, previously being a part of Worcester Common Outlets, an indoor mall. In 2005, CVS moved to its current location from the mall. As part of their decision-making process, CVS considers factors such as maintaining access to pharmacy services in the communities they serve, local market dynamics, population shifts, store density in the community and ensuring there are other geographic access points for customers.

Prescriptions from the closing store will be transferred to the CVS Pharmacy at 400 Park Ave. However, customers have the option to fill their prescriptions at any other CVS location. All employees at the closing store have been offered comparable positions within the company.

The owner of the 110 Front St. property, Franklin Realty Advisors, has not provided any information about the future of the property. The closing of the Front Street location is not an isolated incident, as several CVS locations nationwide have been dealing with an increase in shoplifting. To combat this issue, everyday items such as toothbrushes and razors have been locked away in some stores.

Worcester still has several CVS Pharmacy locations throughout the city, including on Park Avenue, Grafton Street, West Boylston Street, Lincoln Street, Stafford Street, Southwest Cutoff, and Chandler Street. The West Boylston Street location also includes a Minute Clinic.

The downtown CVS Pharmacy on Front and Commercial streets sits on the corner where the Brewer Building, anchored by Brewer Pharmacy, once stood. The Brewer Building was demolished in 1967 as part of downtown redevelopment.
