The CVS Pharmacy located at 22-08 31st Street is closing down at the end of this month and its customers are being referred to the Ditmars Blvd branch half a block away.

The 31st Street pharmacy will be shutting its doors at the end of January and all prescription records will be transferred to the CVS Pharmacy at 31-01 Ditmars Blvd, a store manager said.

The staff at the 31st Street location are unsure what will happen to their jobs.

“It is a play it by ear situation,” the store manager said. “Even I don’t know where I am going to be after this month.”

The manager said that he was unsure what led to the decision to close the store, or what will be coming to the location once CVS closes.

Trader joes and chipotle? You serious? Support local businesses, they are the backbone of nyc. Live in the city or better yet, go back home transplant.


I hope they all go to the bigger store. I like that staff way better than the ones in the 24 hour store. They’re more welcoming and nicer. I hate going to the 24 hour store I hate mario he’s so rude.


you don’t like me? why???? if i remember correctly you were a loud mouthed bitch in my store. I remember you were the woman who called me an ugly drunken oaf in front of my over paid and good for nothing staff. you try being me at a 24 hour cvs with all these lazy people!!!


“The manager said that he was unsure what led to the decision to close the store” It might be the fact that there is a nicer CVS across the street
