CVS Dumps Pharmacy for a Grocery Store at Treasure Island

The 12,000-square-foot CVS coming to Treasure Island is no longer a pharmacy, but a "grocery store."

The huge, 47,963-square-foot retail addition to the front of Treasure Island only has one declared tenant and they've now changed their mind on what they want to sell. And for hungry Vegas visitors it may prove a quick bite boon.

The still very much under construction, $15 million budgeted project has shunned recent suggestions they would slot a restaurant into one of the three levels. But ground floor tenants CVS will help you snack you way through the 24-hour Vegas scene.

The 12,000-square-foot CVS was originally approved to function as a pharmacy, much like its retail rival Walgreens located almost directly across the street at the Venetian. But newly filed paperwork has asked for this CVS site to be reclassified, explaining it will operate "more like a grocery store." There will no longer be a pharmacist on site.

When first revealed by Eater Vegas back in July 2013, a restaurant and even a car showroom were presented as plausible tenants to help persuade Zoning Commission members to green light the concept. Fourteen months later, a debut for CVS is expected by the end of this year.
