A few months ago I sent in a link to a proposal for CVS to take over the R&R furniture building in Goleta (near Storke and Hollister). There are signs on the furniture store announcing they are closing. Unknown for sure if they are related.

L.A. Times, March 10, 2014. "CVS could face as much as $29 million in fines for allegedly losing track of prescription painkillers at four of its California stores, from which authorities said thousands of pills may have been sold on the black market, ... more than 37,000 pills were apparently taken from CVS stores. CVS pharmacists in Southern California said they've been instructed by the drugstore chain to get their paperwork in order so that no other prescription meds are found to be missing."

From L.A. Times, October 15, 2010. "The nation's largest pharmacy chain will pay $75 million in the unlawful sale of pseudoephedrine at stores in California and Nevada. The drug is a key ingredient in the manufacture of methamphetamine." There are plenty of CVS fines, not just this one. This is no secret.

The new mini Target (La Cumbre/State) opening in October will have a CVS pharmacy. And, Target will sell beer and wine. Not enough places in S.B. to buy beer and wine...unless you count every single block.

I've heard CVS is lenient on meth servicing. Don't they have a reputation for "looking the other way" on certain purchases? Google: CVS fines, and CVS Pharmacy fined.

Went there looking at beds but was concerned they might be closing. Sales person assured me they were not. I would be really upset if I had purchased and found out I was lied to.

Only went in to R&R once or twice. Last time was to ask if I could use some cardboard for a lawn removal, but it turned out their recycling area was used as a homeless toilet so the cardboard was ruined. I buy all my furniture at Costco...good stuff, great prices...just have to be patient until something in your style appears.

I live right behind this location. They, CVS, installed a drive thru lane on the east side nearly two months ago. The zoning hearing for CVS was well advertised in the newspaper prior to that.

Costco drugstore is way cheaper than CVS!

The Pharmacy might be cheaper and open for everyone, but if you're going to buy anything else you need a membership. Not a viable alternative to an actual drugstore either.

CS805 - true, the closest drug store is the CVS off Fairview. Kmart doesn't cut it.

Went to the furniture store a week ago when it said "relinquishment". I asked if they were going out of business. The salesman that would not stop shadowing me said no just making room for more inventory. BYE BYE

Big selection of ugly furniture. What do you expect?

Not any uglier than anywhere else. They had some nice stuff in there.

You want ANOTHER CVS? They're getting to be as prolific as Starbucks. CVS is the Greyhound Bus Lines of pharmacies. God, I miss Long's!

In that part of Goleta, they need a drug store.
