CVS USE thisA CVS store is slated to open on U.S. Route 40 between Brookmont Drive and Wellington Drive. Still under construction at the site is a Royal Farms.

The site  formerly housed Atlantic Homes, a mobile and modular home dealer.
At one point, the site had been rumored to the location of a Kohl’s store. The Wisconsin retailer went on to opt for a site in Glasgow off Route 40 and near the Maryland border.
Both CVS, which is based in Rhode Island and Royal Farms, which has its headquarters in Maryland have been expanding in Delaware.
CVS pulled back operations several years ago, closing stores on Main Street in Newark and the Christiana Mall. Following the acquisition of Harry Harry’s by arch rival Walgreens, CVS has been adding stores in Wilmington, Stanton and other sites. It remains in a third place in terms of stores in Delaware, behind Walgreens and Rite Aid.

Gas station-convenience store operator Royal Farms has also been building stores, but in New Castle County has not been able to keep up with Wawa, which is adding locations at a rapid rate.

  1. I am thrilled that a CVS is opening in my area. I am originally from PA and have shopped at CVS for many years. I was disappointed when the CVS closed in Christians Mall, even though there were Happy Harry’s and Rite Aids located closer to me. Thank you

  2. DOES ANYONE KNOW WHEN THE CVS WILL BE OPENING IN BEAR DELAWARE ?

    HOW CAN YOU APPLY FOR EMPLOYMENT THERE ?
