CVS Health announced yesterday that it will rebuild its CVS/pharmacy locations in Baltimore, Maryland, that were damaged during protests last week.
The two CVS/pharmacy locations to be rebuilt are located at 2509 Pennsylvania Ave. and 2560 W. Franklin St.
"As we watched the events unfold in Baltimore over the past week or so, our hearts turned from pain to the promise of what is ahead," CVS Health President and CEO Larry Merlo said. "Our purpose as a company is helping people on their path to better health. There is no better way that we can fulfill that purpose than to reopen our doors and get back to serving the community. It is simply the right thing to do."
CVS/pharmacy has had locations in Baltimore since the middle of the nineties and now has almost 30 stores and more than 500 employees.
“We have a long history of serving inner city communities, and we are 100 percent committed to serving our patients and customers in Baltimore,” Merlo said. “We can't tell you today exactly when we will reopen, but we are working diligently to make it as soon as possible for the people of Baltimore. Already, our colleagues have been stepping up to welcome customers to our other locations, and I am very proud of all they have done to stand tall and continue to serve."
