Yes, there already is a CVS on the corner of Route 19 and Fort Couch Road. However, CVS officials may build a new store kitty-corner from the existing location.
Representatives met with the Upper St. Clair Planning Commission on April 19 for a pre-application conference. They said they are looking into demolishing the Crossgates Plaza complex and constructing a new store, according to the township's Director of Community Development Scott Brilhart. CVS's current building would then be available for other businesses to lease.
Crossgates Plaza is home to a variety of businesses right now including Einstein Bros Bagels, Boston Market, Healthy Pet Products and Chyten Education Services. It is unknown what would happen to the businesses.
Gregg Schwotzer of Crossgates Inc. told Upper St. Clair Patch that a lot of people have approached the company about the property and that they have "no agreement with CVS." He said CVS has "no authority to talk to Upper St. Clair about the property at this time" and has "no clue why they would have done that."
A newer Walgreens store is located across Fort Couch Road from the current CVS building.
What do you think of the possibility of a new CVS store on the Crossgates Plaza property? Tell us in the comments.
