Target pharmacies converting to CVS


Pharmacies in the Jacksonville-area Target department stores will be converted to CVS Pharmacy locations in March or April.

CVS Health Corp. and Target Corp. announced Dec. 16 that CVS Health completed the purchase of Target’s pharmacy and clinic business for about $1.9 billion.

CVS Health acquired Target’s 1,672 pharmacies in 47 states.

Woonsocket, R.I.-based CVS will brand them as CVS/pharmacy and operate them through a store-within-a-store format.

CVS Health also will rebrand 79 Target clinic locations as MinuteClinic.

Minneapolis-based Target said it will include a CVS/pharmacy in all of its new stores that offer pharmacy services.

CVS Health also said it would open up to 20 new clinics in Target stores within three years.

All Target pharmacies and clinics are expected to be rebranded within six to nine months of the acquisition.

A spokewoman confirmed the Jacksonville timeframe.

CVS Health operates more than 9,500 retail pharmacies, more than 1,100 walk-in clinics and is a pharmacy benefits manager with more than 70 million plan members, among other services.

Target’s website shows its eight stores in Jacksonville and at least three more in surrounding counties have pharmacies.

CVS Health operates more than 30 pharmacies in the Jacksonville area and at least six have MinuteClinics.

Interstate Distributor leasing up NorthPoint

Pattillo Industrial Real Estate said its NorthPoint Industrial Park reached 100 percent occupancy following the execution of a lease for 70,020 square feet with Interstate Distributor Co.

Interstate Distributor will relocate from Alta Lakes Commerce Center to occupy NorthPoint’s last remaining vacancy at 3700 Port Jacksonville Parkway, according to Pattillo Vice President Peter Anderson.

Interstate Distributor is one of five operating groups within the Saltchuk organization headquartered in Tacoma, Wash. It provides transportation services to many Fortune 500 companies.

The city is reviewing a permit application for Dav-Lin Interior Contractors to build-out space for Interstate Distributor at a project cost of $365,000.

Anderson said the move allows the company to expand its Jacksonville operations by increasing its overall footprint and use the building’s extended truck court that was designed for tenants in the transportation industry.

NorthPoint Industrial Park is between New Berlin Road and Alta Drive, less than 3 miles from the Port of Jacksonville.

The park consists of about 350 acres with more space for new development.

NorthPoint comprises six Class A industrial facilities totaling more than 850,000 square feet with plans for additional speculative buildings, Anderson said.

Other tenants include The Hillman Group, APR Energy and Truaire, which opened a 90,000-square-foot distribution center at NorthPoint in the second quarter of 2015.

DeBiase retail center planned in Southside

The site once intended as a GFS Marketplace is becoming a retail center.

Site plans show Mark DeBiase, manager of AD Development LLC, wants to build two structures on the almost 2-acre site at 13423 Beach Blvd., near Hodges Boulevard.

Plans show the two buildings, at more than 7,000 square feet each, would feature restaurants.

DeBiase and Ticon Inc., the contractor, applied for a building permit for site and shell construction of the 14,400-square-foot project at a construction cost of $1.4 million.

GFS Marketplace, part of Michigan-based Gordon Food Service, was approved to build its first Jacksonville food store there, but that didn’t happen. The developer sold the property to AD Development.

Rezoning requested for Daily’s on San Jose

City Council is reviewing a rezoning ordinance for the proposed Daily’s gas station and convenience store at southeast San Jose Boulevard and Sunbeam Road.

Council’s Land Use and Zoning Committee introduced Ordinance 2016-110 to rezone 5.2 acres at 9545 San Jose Blvd.

The rezoning would permit commercial uses for the Daily’s.

England-Thims & Miller is the project engineer. It outlines total square footage of 54,300 square feet.

A preliminary site plan dated Dec. 11 shows existing retail space of 48,600 square feet and the proposed Daily’s development of 5,700 square feet in front of it, facing San Jose Boulevard.

It also shows 20 fueling stations.

The existing retail center is anchored by Bailey’s Health & Fitness and includes several more tenants.

First Coast Energy said the Daily’s will feature its DASH food service.

CubeSmart adding San Pablo self-storage

Winter Garden-based Self Storage Associates Inc. wants to develop a CubeSmart Self Storage center in San Pablo.

The company applied to the St. Johns River Water Management District to build a four-story, 105,600-square-foot self-storage center on about 3.6 acres along the east side of San Pablo Road, north of Beach Boulevard.

Taylor & White Inc. is the civil engineer.

At least 11 CubeSmart Self Storage centers operate in the Jacksonville area.
