CVS Open Again After Nearly Six-Month Closure


SUMMIT, NJ - Closed since a ceiling failure that occurred on Valentine's Day, CVS/pharmacy - located a 29 DeForest Avenue - has re-opened.

The heavy weight of snowfall caused a wooden truss to fail.  "The ceiling did not collapse, but we took the opportunity to make repairs and ensure the structural integrity of the building., said Mike DeAngelis, Director of Public Relations for CVS Caremark.  "We replaced the truss with a steel I-beam, and also installed additional support columns."
During the nearly six-month shutdown, customers were served by a mobile pharmacy unit, which allowed prescriptions to continue to be filled.  The mobile unit is a fully-functioning pharmacy that is deployed to store locations when operations are disrupted by emergencies.
Store employees were reassigned to other nearby CVS/pharmacy locations during the closure, such as their New Providence store.  In addition to repairs, all of the store fixtures were replaced.
"Our Summit store has been serving the community since 1990, and we look forward to continue providing our customers in Summit with high quality pharmacy services and products now that the store has re-opened," said DeAngelis.

Extra Time

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.

As fans watching the World Cup know too well, bathroom breaks are a serious dilemma, especially for those who don’t have a TV in the loo.  This biological necessity is exasperated by beer, which during World Cup matches also fuels a strong propensity to throw chairs and instigate riots.
