WICHITA — CVS is working on a deal for a new store at the northwest corner of Douglas and Rock.
That's according to CVS manager Rodney Brockhoff, who says the chain has several new stores that are opening and others that are in the works in the Wichita area and other Kansas cities.
CVS entered the Wichita market earlier this year.
Brockhoff says a Junction City CVS will open in January, followed by one at Harry and Hillside in Wichita on Feb. 16.
Then come stores in Emporia and Salina before more in Wichita. The south side is likely to be CVS' next target.
Brockhoff says the Rhode Island-based company wants to get some deals closed before taking on more than what's already in the works.
He says the potential Douglas and Rock store is "just one of many locations we're working on."
