The plan to build a new CVS drug store in Wood River has come full circle. The store, located on property directly across from Walgreen's at the corner of Wood River Avenue and Edwardsville Road, opens with a ribbon cutting at 8am Sunday, and plenty of activities all day long.
Among the attractions will be complimentary spinal adjustments and chair massages, free blood pressure screenings, bike helmet fittings, appearances by Fredbird and a couple of Rams cheerleaders, and free child I.D.'s, courtesy of the East Alton and Wood River Fire Departments. Store Manager Becky Patterson says that's not all.
The East Alton location on Berkshire will close at Noon on Saturday, and all pharmacy records will be transferred to the new store. This will be the first CVS store in Wood River.
