CVS has filed plans to build a new store where an IHOP now stands at the corner of 16th and Meridian streets. The new pharmacy would replace the iconic pancake house and a probation office that was an Osco pharmacy several years ago. The site is across the street from a Walgreens that opened last year. Plans show the building would sit up against the intersection, with parking behind it and along Meridian. The parking area appears to also include a lot previously used by the Payton Wells car dealership. CVS already has a store nearby, at Illinois and 18th streets, that it likely would close.
