Probably not the most urgent of news, but I got really excited about it none-the-less.
The pharmacy at CVS on 5th street, the only pharmacy in downtown Austin proper (the now closed Live Oak Pharmacy used to the closest next best thing), is now, finally, open on weekends!
For those living in downtown Austin condos like the Austonian or the Brazos Lofts, especially…your prescription filling life just got a lot easier.
And, just to be clear, this is NOT a plug for CVS, simply a plug for convenience.
An improvement, but still laughably horrible hours. I work in transportation downtown and constantly have to turn down people who want to go to the CVS. I have to tell them that – despite the enormous nightlife crowds every weekend – it closes at 6pm on Saturdays! I’ve never seen another business that so strongly rejects its customers demands and money.
