Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.

That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.

And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.

A new CVS Pharmacy will set up shop, this time at the corner of Durand and Lathrop Avenues in the former Kohl’s space.

Company officials confirmed for the Milwaukee Business Journal that they will raze the building and put up a new, 13,225-square foot store and pharmacy across the street from it’s primary competitor, Walgreen’s.

Work is slated to begin still this month, the story reads.

Kohl’s closed in 2003 and has been vacant ever since. The Village of Elmwood Park in 2012 successfully fought off an effort by Walmart to build a Neighborhood Market on the same site, and village officials worked with NorStates Bank in 2013 to strip away old peeling paint and give the old store a fresh coat of white.

This new CVS is scheduled to open later this fall, the MBJ story continues.

The fate of a new CVS planned for the corner of Ohio Street and Washington Avenue – also across the street from Walgreen’s – is up to the city Common Council after the Planning Commission on April 9 rejected CVS’ plan, which includes improvements like better sight lines and reducing the number of driveways there from 10 to two.
