Perhaps he is thinking of the existing pharmacies and the impact on those businesses. There are only so many dollars in the county and I highly doubt another pharmacy will increase sales tax revenue. Try bringing a business that we don't already have.

Which property are you referring to? If it is the block across from the courthouse where the florist and pizza place are, possibly it is an effort to preserve those buildings as a future historic district, which is commendable, even though they are in desperate needs of renovation.

Sometimes CVS is known to buy out an existing pharmacy/pharmacies when moving to new towns they build in.

If this is the former florist-pharmacy you are referring to, do you honestly believe their existing customer base is enough for sustained growth?

Good luck to CVS. At least they are corporate so will bring some sort of funds to the county via construction of the building, permits and possibly employment.

If CVS truly wanted to buy property, any property, they would put in an offer to the owner(s), regardless of who the mayor is. The mayor may offer an opinion, but I highly doubt it holds weight to sway corporate decisions. Possibly CVS finished their homework and realized the demographics are not right for the area.

Yes, time will tell.

I agree, you right about that. And I wish them well, it is nice to have choices where to shop. CVS offer good weekly sale prices, like Walgreen's.

On the radio Mayor Smith didn't say that the buildings couldn't be torn down. He said he wished the Historic buildings across from Court House could be perserved because of the History behind them.I also wish they could be perserved.

Here we go again trying to preserve a rundown building instead of tearing it down. We have a nice preserved empty boarded up building sitting out next to York Institute that will never be used again. Now we want to preserve this run down building and when the few businesses that are there dry up we will have just the same a boarded up empty building. Tear it down and let CVS come in and clean up this area of town.

I think the old buildings should be preserved. Cvs is a large corporation who could careless about a small community its about the money for them

The buildings are not run down in front of the court house there not no were near as bad as York was. There are still business in them. Its like Alan Jacksons song song little man. Cvs is a large corporation who could care less about us. It will be just like Wal-Mart's grocery store they try to close down the small stores in return they can charge what ever they please.

What good are those old run down building doing for the city? Nothing just a eye soar. Just like down next to brooks old jewelry all the way to the city police station. Those should be tore down there old and no way anyone could occupy them !. Tear them down or sell out. Atleast down town would look more modern than the old worn out town

We NEED as many drugstores/pharmacies as we can get! Our town has a very serious problem with pain. The residents of Fentress County are in NEED of massive amounts of medication. The sheer number of people on disability should attract pharmacist from around the globe to Jamestown. I suggest the city and county commission take measures to either attract a factory that produces pain medications and methadone, or build a 4-lane directly to the interstate to allow speedier delivery of narcotics to this county by freight. I do believe we have done wonderful job with attracting those that prescribe the much needed medicine that allows us to live everyday in Fentress county.
