CVS Tries To Keep Up With Walgreens Expansion In South Beach

CVS and Walgreens continue their efforts to place a store on nearly every block in South Beach.

CVS recently signed a 20-year lease to open a new 11,569 square foot store at 555 Washington Avenue, just one block east of another CVS at 615 5th Street. The lease at the existing 5th street CVS store is set to expire next year.

Construction on the new CVS is underway.

Walgreens has at least eight South Beach locations open or in planning, while CVS has four.
