They didn't buy the businesses. They bought the ground out from under them and then evicted them. They would have done the same to the tenants on any part of Block 50 when the land owners sold out.(Thank goodness some were not interested.) How would you feel as a small business owner with a thriving or at least viable business to have a corporation come in and tell you bye bye with no care or recompense to help you relocate in a new place and rebuild your business. CVS's greedy corporate model doesn't give a hoot about who they are running rough shod over all for the great dollar and shaft their competitor.

I am a retired small business owner and still own a strip mall in Clovis, NM where I currently collect rent on 13 tenants. Everybody thinks it's so easy owning property and leasing it out and you must be a rich person to be able to do it. If only people knew about the hassels of collecting rent especially in this economy, some tentants will load up in the middle of the night and skip town. Then I have to find a new tenant, I have the expense of advertising, cleaning up the mess the previous tenant left, many times having to remodel the unit they left, maintenance on the entire building, hot weather brings Air Conditioning costs, cold weather brings snow removal cost, I can go on and on but you would never understand the full costs not only in money but time it takes to run a business unless you have done it yourself. If a greedy corporation wanted to buy me out today I would sell. It's my right as an American to sell, I have worked extremely hard in my life to build my business and make it and my family a success. I built it, I did it. Not YOU, Not OBAMA!

Meanwhile it's now 2015 and the county commission still is renovating it daily or weekly keeping it's buddy contractor system employed gracefully on tax payer dollars. Wake up folks. Sitting useless and empty with renovations over renovations. Cough not to mention the Las cruces roofer contractor was cousin to a local contractor who wins county bids last several years.
You are an idiot. It is not empty. It is currently storing some local artifacts. Clueless jerks like you spew bs without knowing the truth.
