CVS Pharmacy has celebrated the grand opening of its first-ever standalone store in Oregon with a ribbon cutting ceremony. The new store at 105 NW 13th Ave. in Portland, OR, is the first of three retail locations to open in the greater Portland market in 2019, with one more store opening in 2020.
“We are excited to open our first store in the state of Oregon. We are honored to have the ability to serve the Portland community with our best in class pharmacy services and a curated assortment of health, beauty, and convenience products,” said Kevin Hourican, evp/CVS Health and president, CVS Pharmacy. “Our purpose as a company is to help people on their path to better health. We welcome the opportunity to bring this purpose to life in Portland.”
To mark CVS Pharmacy’s entrance to the Portland market and reaffirm the company’s commitment to investing in the communities it serves, CVS Health also will provide a $15,000 corporate grant to the North by Northeast Community Health Center, a non-profit clinic providing high-quality health care to low-income adults in Portland.
Throughout the state of Oregon, CVS Pharmacy already has a presence in 19 pharmacies, located within Target stores.
