Obviously, this is a supermarket blog. But sometimes something else catches my attention and I decide to post that as well. About 25 miles west of Tampa, in a small coastal town called Indian Rocks Beach, I saw something that I had never seen before. And that was this.
It's a CVS. Not a CVS/pharmacy, but just a CVS. As in, a CVS drugstore without a counter for prescriptions.
Just CVS. No pharmacy.
The logo looks very lonely up there with no other words to keep it company, don't you think? And inside, where the pharmacy should be, there is just general merchandise shelves.
Now, I'd heard about these non-pharmacy pharmacies before, but I'd never seen one in person. I don't know exactly why this store doesn't have a pharmacy counter, nor do I know if it ever did. But presumably zoning regulations or the like prevented CVS from installing a service prescription department. Does anyone know of any other big-chain drugstores without prescription counters? This CVS is located at 353 Gulf Blvd, Indian Rocks Beach, FL.
