Demolition Begins for Clarion Main Street CVS Project

cvs-project-demoCLARION, Pa. (EYT) – The demolition of a block of Main Street Clarion for a new CVS Pharmacy started early Saturday morning with a wrecking crew taking care of the former Clarion KFC.

Four buildings will be demolished to make way for construction of the pharmacy – NAPA Auto Parts, Zeller’s Music, Kentucky Fried Chicken and a property commonly known as “Judge Weaver’s House.”

Some local citizens have expressed concern over demolishing the Weaver Place house because of its historic value.  It was once home to George Washington Arnold, one of the founders of Clarion State Normal School, and later Judge Lloyd F. Weaver.


NAPA Auto Parts, the last business open at the location of the new CVS, is moving to its new home near the intersection of Water Run Landing Road and 5th Avenue.

Clarion Borough Secretary Mark Hall says borough code requires demolition work to be completed in 7 days.

The new CVS store and parking lot will occupy Main Street from Weaver Place to Seventh Avenue.
